Weather for the parade and Irish Market was anything but warm and sunny, but many brave Palatinians came out anyway! Share your pics with Palatine Patch!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! The weather was, fierce, on Saturday afternoon as cold wind blew, snowflakes floated through the air and temperatures were in the 30's-but hundreds of Palatine and area residents braved the weather to enjoy the parade. And the Irish Market, or maybe both! Share your St. Patty's Day pictures with Palatine Patch - your editor (yours truly) was marching in the parade handing out goodies to parade go-ers, and did not takes pictures of the parade!! Upload yours if you have them to share the St. Patrick's Day parade, or overall experience with others!
