Parade Day in Scranton Brings the Crowds Downtown
SCRANTON, Pa. -- The weather was much warmer than last year's St. Patrick's Parade, helping to make Scranton's annual celebration of Irish heritage a wee bit brighter. One bar owner tells Newswatch 16 it was a slow start for business, but he's expecting to beat last year's numbers. Bagpipers, miniature ponies, leprechauns, even a hot-rod grocery cart made their way down Wyoming Avenue in the Scranton St. Patrick's Parade that drew thousands to the Electric City.
