Posted: Updated:
KHQ.com - Top of the morning to you! It's that time of year when we are all Irish at least a day! St. Patrick's Day! What a wonderful time of year. I like it not because I get to spray paint my monster beard green, but because it means we are that much closer to Spring, which means we are that much closer to Summer! And let's face it, after this bitter cold, grey and dreary Winter, a little sunshine is much appreciated! So let's not only celebrate the Irish, but let's rejoice in the fact that Spring has sprung!

We've compiled pictures from this years St. Patrick's Day parade and viewer photos from the weekend festivities into one awesome slideshow! If you have any photos you'd like to submit, send them to pix@khq.com! Cheers everyone!
