St. Patrick himself blessed the
assembled lads and lassies.
The kids cleaned up on candy at the Parade.
Irish Nuns are not known for their beauty.
Betty Hayes Dancers
strutted their stuff.
International Students from
UW Richland Campus
were all Irish for the Day.
The Leading Ladies
participated with a float
and face painting.
Not all Irish Lassies are
what you'd call "cute"
