I drove through St. Paul today around noon. It was right before the start of the St. Patrick's Day parade, and the main drag of downtown was covered in a sea of green. One of these days I'll actually watch the parade!
The best part is watching how people get dressed up for the holiday. Some just wear something green, others don Irish promotional garb, while a few actually get really creative - like the guy dressed as a pint of Guinness.
