Sunny skies and temperatures in the 50’s greeted the thousands of people that tuned out on Saturday, March 17, 2018 in downtown Grand Rapids to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. A late morning parade down Monroe Street that ended up at Veterans Park started the activities followed by Ionia Street being blocked off for Irish on Ionia.
