ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Temperatures were in the 60’s, the crowd was in the thousands for Saturday’s St. Louis St. Patrick’s Parade in downtown St. Louis.

The parade was a big one. . .and the crowd lining the parade had one strong fashion statement. . .the color green.  Before the parade, another St. Louis tradition. . .the 33rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Run downtown.  This year, more than 12-thousand runners, walkers and wheel chair racers took part.  

There’ll be another St. Patrick’s Parade. . .on St. Patrick’s Day Thursday. . .winding through the Dogtown neighborhood south of Highway 40.
