Thousands enjoy Fort Lauderdale’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities

Gloomy skies did not dampen the sunny dispositions on thousands of smiling faces at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival in Fort Lauderdale, Saturday.

There seemed to be more people wearing the green than there were blades of grass in the downtown area.

Pompano Beach Irishman Garrett Mooney was dressed in a giant inflatable shamrock suit, and if his wife Veronica, daughter Tori, 16, and son Austin, 11, were embarrassed, their blushing was green too.

“All the floats that have gone by are really beautiful,” he said. “We liked the Irish bagpipes walking by. That was our favorite.”
