3/17/17: Friday afternoon was sunny and warm, good weather for people to sit outside and celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The annual SD Ireland Parade provided some entertainment with its procession of 20 honking concrete trucks. The mighty march was flanked by police cars on both ends and departed from SD Ireland in Burlington, proceeded through the Winooski circle, up Church Street in Burlington and through Williston before returning to its headquarters.

This St. Patrick's Day parade has become a tradition over the past 30 years and revelers waved from the streets along the route. During the past decade, the event has become a fundraiser and the SD Ireland Cancer Research Fund has raised $4.2 million over the years.

Eva put on a shamrock hat and hitched a ride in a concrete truck for the rowdy cavalcade.

Music: Kevin MacLeod, "Fiddles McGinty," "Galway" & "Master of the Feast"
