Thousands attend Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
Excitement filled the air as thousands covered downtown Springfield for the St. Patrick's Day Parade.
This year marked the 34th year for the parade.
Dozens of floats rolled through the city.
Each group threw out special treats for those who came to enjoy the festivities.
Springfield police wanted those attending to do so safely.
They handed out cab vouchers to many downtown bars to cover the cost of cab rides.
S.P.D. hopes to ensure no parade goers drink and drive.
