Hundreds of onlookers crowded the streets of downtown Omaha on Saturday, March 10 for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. There was Irish music, Irish dancing and even Irish dogs as over 70 entrants performed for Omaha in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

Skutt Catholic sophomore Molly Harper was a participant in the parade, as well. Harper is a member of the Stepperettes Baton & Dance dance group, which performed their routine on Saturday. “It was fun,” said Harper. “I think I’ll go again next year but as a spectator.”

Needless to say, the 2018 St. Patrick’s Day Parade was a roaring success—here’s to hoping there will many more successful ones in the future.
