A great parade where the viewer’s dress in Irish green and cheer on the participants. The weather was in the 70’s with a strong wind which made the day bearable. We followed a group of colorfully dressed Irish dancers who gave out Irish beads to the crowd. They could literally kick their heels together while dancing next to the trucks.
The Houston Fire Museums 1937 Chevrolet Fire Truck I ride in made it thru the parade like a pro. Fellow Houston Fire Museum members Cheryl and Jim McGee followed us in their newer 1955 Firetruck just in case it did break down. We ran into old friends Michael Horan and Michael Griffin the founder of Griff’s Sports Bar. The highlight of our day was when we were able to convince Mayor Parker she needed her picture taken with Kathryn Peters and Tanya White by the Fire Truck.
