I’ve got another neighborhood highlight for ya this week: Dogtown. Traditionally an Irish neighborhood, it’s home of the most authentic St. Patrick’s Day parade in the STL – put on by the Ancient Order of Hibernians. I’m not certain exactly what that means, but it sure does sound authentic, right?
I’m pleased to report that I went to the parade for the first time this Sunday and it was just wonderful! I’ll admit it was rather cold, but the fun and festivities helped keep it enjoyable. I saw lots of floats, got a bunch of beads, and pretended I was Irish for the day. And isn’t that what St. Patrick’s Day is all about?
