Louisburg High marching band making waves
The Louisburg High School marching band will play in the 2018 Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif. They’re also making a name for themselves in today’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.
Samanth Scholtz, who came to see her son march in the parade, is thrilled that the band will play in Pasadena during the 2018 Rose Parade.
“For a town of 3,000 it’s a huge deal,” Scholtz said.
Beagle and a fire truck
Mayor Sly James is at the parade, riding in the back of a classic convertible. He’s wearing some green, but that driver’s hat may be the best attire seen in the car.
Pipes and drums
Kansas City St. Andrew Pipes and Drums and the Ancient Order of Hibernians making their way down Broadway:
St. Patrick’s Day is turning Kansas City’s streets green.
The Kansas City St. Patrick’s Day parade began at 11 a.m. at Linwood and Broadway boulevards.
Just before the floats started down Broadway, Kansas Citians could be seen making last minute touches to their creations, and others were lining the streets for a day of celebration.
