Yesterday morning, thousands of people gathered in uptown to celebrate the 22nd annual Charlotte St. Patrick’s Day parade and Charlotte Goes Green festival.
The parade kicked off at 10am in the heart of Charlotte to the sound of pipes and the cheers of the spectators lining the streets on a perfect day. The combination of flags, floats, kids, and pipe band music made everyone smile and be Irish for a day.
Organizers now estimate that there were over 3,000 marchers and float participants, and more than 45,000 people lining the streets to watch the festivities.
Did you have a good St. Pattrick’s Day?
