i was standing on a corner in winooski on st. patrick's day and all sudden i hear all these horns blowing and i thought "oh, no. i am now stuck here because apparently there is going to be a parade."
well, yes and no.
apparently what happens in chittenden county is that the entire cement mixer fleet of sd ireland goes on parade. i had never heard of it before, but apparently it's a THING.
here's what it looks like from where i was standing (i only had the presence of mind to video the tail end):
but then writing this i went to look it up and found a good article (includes viedo!) from seven days, and there's even a map of this year's route.
i file this under "stuff that goes on where you live for three decades and you only just now hear about it"
