Representatives from the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, Clarks Summit, shown at right, were among several thousand people who arrived in downtown Scranton March 10, sporting their green clothing and Irish spirit to celebrate the 51st annual Scranton St. Patrick Parade. The annual event stepped off at 11:45 a.m. and ended just after 3 p.m. Parade Director Jamie Hailstone said the event featured about 50 musical acts, including eight local marching bands and 15 pipe bands – surpassing last year's record number of pipe and drum corps by one.
