St. Patty's Day Movies

Here are a couple small videos I took of the parade yesterday:

Irish bagpipers!

This year's parade controversy was that the firefighters were moved from the front of the parade to the middle. The president of the parade organizing committee accused them of showing up drunk at the parade in previous years. The first firefighters to walk carried 343 American flags for the firemen lost in 9/11. The crowd went wild. Mayor Bloomberg then led the rest of the firefighters through the parade. There were at least 1000 men and women marching and they all seemed well behaved. The crowd went wild again! Maybe they will lead-off the parade next year.
