Afterwards I watched the St. Patrick’s Day parade. Compared to the revelrous boozefest of NYC, Seattle’s parade was very sedate and community-focused. Motorcyclists from the Seattle Police rode in lines that intersected and weaved through each other. There were pirates that fired a loud cannon. There were step dancing crews. There was even a group of ten or so DeLoreans.
A lot of the groups in the parade were in no way related to Saint Patrick or Irish culture. But I can imagine how they could all be strung together in a D-Movie plot. Saint Patrick travels back in time in a DeLorean, dressed as a pirate, using step dance to assist his preaching, riding a motorcycle across Ireland.
