55th Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Downtown – If you were in the downtown¬†area on Saturday, you probably couldn’t have missed this one. The streets were filled with smiling faces and a very green parade! It was a little damp outside

but the spirits were still high. Captain William Dowling, a firefighter who was injured in a fire last year, was honored as the Grand Marshall.

36th Annual 1960 Parade -Located on FM 1960 this afternoon, the parade was promised to go on, rain or shine! But what’s a Saint Patrick’s Day celebration without a rainbow and pot o’ gold, anyway? The celebration was for a good cause, as the proceeds of the event go to the Cypress Creek EMS Education Scholarship Programs.
