St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays and not just because I’m half-Irish. The real reason is all my Austin friends come up for the Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade and it’s a huge reunion weekend! Now, if you’re familiar with the parade, you probably think it’s just a huge party. And while that’s partially true, here’s a little tidbit that you might not know. The parade is put on by the Greenville Avenue Area Business Association, and all the proceeds from the parade benefit the GAABA Scholarship fund, which goes directly to DISD students. So, while you’re getting your party on, you’re also helping out a great charity!
If you’ve never done the parade (first, why not?), there’s really no wrong way to do it. But I’ve done this thing more than once so here are a few highlights from my personal experience!
