Southside Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade!!!


Creepy little fella, ain't he?

Just a few of the hundreds of thousands of people having a good time.


Iconic


A lot more of Chicago's Police State made it's presence this year.


Did you know there's a parade going on?


These cops are actually arresting people for drinking. Now, look at this picture. EVERYONE IS DRINKING. Even the police are drinking. They are drinking at a drinking festival. People come here, pay money, move to Chicago, and make a life and economy based on this fact. Yet, they still arrest people for it...


This guy is talking to the cops saying "ARE YOU SERIOUS? You are arresting them for drinking? What about the other 300,000 people around here drinking? What about the cops and firemen in the parade drinking? You have got to be kidding?"


This is what is going on right above the cops head. A three story building of partying.


Me and Frances making our obligatory stupid face picture.


MORE LEPRECHANS!!!


HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY RANDOM GIRL!!!


Channel 7 trying to get above the peons and little people of Chicago and pretend the Southside parade is something a bit more "classy."


No one did this at all.

A good time had by all. Got to see the parade, had some fun, watched some kids roughed up by the police. All and all, a great St. Patty's Day.
