Folks donned their green and took to the streets for the fun! The Memphis Police Department's mounted unit led the parade, followed by pipes and drums.

The city's sizable Irish community and many others turned out the merriment, complete with leprechauns.

"We had a really good turn out this year, a lot of kids,” says Kenneth Hiner. “The kids really took to the pipes and drums. It's not something you see a lot here in Memphis."

The parade and other festivities throughout the day were co-hosted by the Memphis Irish society and Celtic Crossing Irish pub.
