Grand Marshal Adrian Farrell, our Consul General of Ireland, and Queen Colleen Kate Kelly led the way as Denver's celebrated St. Patrick's Day Parade set off down Wynkoop and Blake Streets in LoDo last Saturday. The crowd, right down to the littlest kids and people's green-clad pooches, got into the spirit of the day, as evidenced by these images brought back from the event by photographer Ken Hamblin III.
If you missed the parade, it's not too late: See our list of 2016 St. Patrick's Day celebrations in Denver for twenty places to party tomorrow, March 17.
