There Are Some Wacky People In This Town

St Pat's In Dogtown 2

I made it  to the Ancient Order of Hibernians parade in Dogtown yesterday. It didn't snow. Although the day was colder, there was little wind and I bundled up. Ready for action.

This parade is smaller. It lacked entries from TV stations and high school marching bands. More families. Most of the marching groups were based on Irish clans although, alas, the Crowes of County Clare were unrepresented.

The participants and crowd were no less wacky than at the big event downtown. That's one of the things I love about St. Louis. It ain't stuffy, or at least the parts that are stay out of my way.

You do seem to have a knack for photographing the wacky side of human nature.
