St. Patrick Day Parade

Traditionally, it was mind-numbing, cheek-pinching cold. I honestly can't remember St. Paddy's Day in Montreal that wasn't freakishly cold and windy. Enthusiastic city folks irished up their coffee, painted faces green, put their highest top hats on and went out cheering and yelling. The parade marched by us...

Frozen to the core security people do crowd control...

Top-hated girls in wigs whistling shrilly...

Complacent elders with green sashes, waiving and smiling...

Brave Karnak shriners swinging the flags and banging xylophones...

Highlander sporting bare knees and playing bagpipes...

For me it was the most challenging sketching outing ever. Try to sketch in the roaring crowd, half of it was already honorary irish by BAC, when everyone was moving, yelling, jumping, kissing, high-fiving and never stay on one place not for a moment! And did I mention it was FREAKING COLD? Still, I am happy I went there and mighty grateful to Jennifer and Natalie for sharing the experience!
