Life Cycle Of A Leprechaun


2017 was the thirteenth year this giant inflatable leprechaun floated over green-tinted Market Street. But how does it arrive from the land of the little people, become so enormous and fade away again until next year?

Well, um, a truck, ropes, and lots and lots of helium. Then, since the laws of physics are mostly time-independent, back the same way in reverse. It was grand in its moment but rather sad to see it prone on the pavement before the Arch, melting away like the Wicked Witch of the West.

I have to agree. He looks so much better floating above the street.
