Sun shines on Saint Patrick's parade
The sun shone on the 190th annual Saint Patrick’s Day parade in Montreal Sunday and green was the official color of the day
Despite mid-winter like temperatures and a brisk wind tens of thousands of people lined Ste-Catherine Street to enjoy the festivities.
Many people showed up well in advance of the noon start time to ensure a good view of the myriad floats, marching bands and other participants along the two kilometer long parade route.
Montreal police report no major incidents.
