St. Patrick's Day Parade in Montreal

Did you know that the St. Patrick's day parade here in Montreal has run every year consecutively since 1824? Even if you're not Irish, it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement! Here at the Flower Pot we're picking out our green outfits already... and hoping the mild weather continues!

This year will let us catch a glimpse of the VW we've hand-decorated that will drive in the parade - but we're particularly charged to see all of you enthusiastic Montrealers in your crazy getups! Herbert Teichmann will be armed with his camera snapping pics of some of your costumes, so make sure to get inventive! You can see his pictures from last year, in our St. Patrick's day section, posted here.

For all of you opting to stay plugged in at home or at work, I will be twittering live updates throughout the parade! Scroll down to the bottom of this page to follow us on twitter, or click here.

See you all this weekend!
