Sunday, March 18, 2012

Erie County, N.Y. - With temperatures as high as 75 degrees at 2 p.m., possibly as many as 125,000 people came out to enjoy St. Patrick's Day in Buffalo, including Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs.

"Everyone in Buffalo and throughout Erie County is Irish today," said Jacobs. "It is great to see so many families out to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and enjoy what seems to be the end of winter."

Parade-goers watched while the Irish dancers, bands, civic organizations, elected leaders and others marched by proudly up Dealware Avenue to celebrate and honor St. Patrick.
