Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The first St. Patrick's Day parade in New York City was in 1762. Today it is the largest parade in the world! 50,000 people march from 44th St up 5th Ave every year. Our school is on W44th St. between 5th & 6th Avenues, so we saw a lot of action today. About 6 bagpipe troops and 3 marching bands were practicing in the street below us, which was hard to ignore so a few of us took a break from drawing to go check it out. The music and the sunshine felt so good!
