It was a day of green beer, green beards and green plastic bowlers. Bagpipers and curled-toe leprechaun shoes. Even a mock Blarney Stone to be kissed was available at the St. Patrick’s Day celebration Saturday at La Villita.

Co-sponsored by Harp & Shamrock Society and Paseo del Rio Association, the world’s only St. Patrick’s Day parade held on a river featured 13 decorated barges filled with more bagpipers, cloggers, musicians playing Irish songs and more.

And, of course, the river was dyed green to match the regalers’ attire.

This was the first time in four years that the society’s celebration of the Irish saint was held at La Villita. During the previous three, it took place on the campus of the University of the Incarnate Word.
