The 55th annual Houston St. Patrick’s Day Parade, one of the largest St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the U.S., features more than 100 Irish-themed floats and parade entries. The two-hour parade also has the dubious distinction of being longest parade in Houston. So pull out the old green “kiss me I’m Irish” t-shit and celebrate in the streets.
The 2014 parade salutes our First Responders – Number One in our hearts always.
