Happy St. Paddy’s! 39th Annual FM 1960 Saint Patrick’s Parade in Houston, TX

Is it true that : “Everyone Loves a Parade”?? I do!!

March 12, 2017 was the 30th Annual FM 1960 Saint Patrick’s Parade in Houston, Texas.  I just happened to hit it right and be nearby – yea! Best part is I got a great seat and parking spot right next to someone playing my kind music! As Houstonian’s also love Mardi Gras there were TONS of colorful beads being thrown from the parade participants along with candy that was a huge hit with all the kids!!

Ok, I lied…best part???? Seeing the Budweiser Clydesdales!!!! I’ve always wanted to see them in person so that was a real treat! They’re soooo pretty!!!

St. Paddy’s Day Max

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
