WASHINGTON COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Friday, March 17, the Town of Erin in Washington County hosted its 43rd St. Patrick's Day parade.
The parade began at the intersection of Highway K and Shamrock Lane and ended at the intersection of Highway K and Highway 167.
The parade committee said they decided to move it due to safety and logistics.
Thousands of people were in attendance.
It started at 11 a.m., but parade spectators lined the streets before 9 a.m.
"We're freezing, and we're drinking, and it's St. Patty's Day," said one parade goer.
While libations flowed, tales of Irish history were heard everywhere.
"The Town of Erin is traditionally Irish, it was settled by Irish settlers back in the day," said Derek Wilcox, owner of Erin Inn Irish Pub.
There were more than 30 floats in the parade this year.
