26th Annual Brookside St. Patrick's Warm-Up Parade
This is it then, the day that people from the Kansas City south suburbs traditionally warm up St. Patrick. Perhaps not being a native Irishman the kidnapping was all too sudden to give him a chance to acclimatise.
Or maybe it was all those nights up on the very exposed peak of Croagh Patrick with nothing but the view of Clew Bay to warm him. You'd think his mother would've tried to talk some sense into him. I know mine would.
The 26th Annual Brookside St Patrick's Warm-Up Parade is sponsored by the Brookside Business Association and the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund, and you can find out all you should ever want to know about it in this Kansas City Infozine article. Starts at 2pm today.
