Best Irish Animals – St. Bernards. Most Shamrocks – Pheasant Lounge. Family Wars – Templer Family. Most Likely to Riot – Pheasant Lounge. Best Overall Float – 2nd Chance Saloon.

“We would like to thank all the 30th year annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade participants, judges and spectactors,” said TRIC spokeswoman Carlene Bockman. “Thank you again for taking the time on a beautiful day to participate in this fun event. It was a gorgeous day for the Irish! Remember, ‘If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, then you’re lucky enough!’”

Following the parade, participants and other folks gathered at 2nd Chance Bar to continue the St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
