Well, if you have to come in second you don't mind nearly as much when you finish behind fine people Like The Harp and Shamrock (Bob Reeder Fan Club).
The Irish Fest gigantic birthday cake float did come in second in our division on a beautiful Saturday at the St. Patrick's Day parade but in the "we-had-a-ball" division, we were champions. Huge thanks and congratulations to the parade committee for the best event ever on a glorious day on Broadway. Today the rains come in and we all head back to work with heads full of great memories and maybe a stray drop or two of Irish whiskey still in a corner somewhere.
And of course...the 2012 Kansas City Irish Fest opens in just 165 days!
