Madison celebrates St. Patrick's Day

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- People in Madison brought out all their green for St. Patrick's Day on Sunday. The city's St. Patrick's Day Parade kicked off at 1:30 p.m. and marched around the Capitol Building.

The parade featured everything from men playing the bagpipes to a whole group of Bolivian dancers. A few Disney princesses even made an appearance.

"It's everything that Madison has is here. Family, friends, fun, the outdoors, the music," said Jeanmarie Sharp, a longtime Madison resident.

Virginia Haas, who came to the parade for the first time this year had one suggestion.

"I think they should give the adults green beer, to make up for the candy," she said.

Haas also said she loved seeing the dancers and their outfits.

The crowd was decked out in green, including leprechaun hats, shamrocks and green beads. Some people said they have been coming to the parade for almost 10 years, and many have made it into a tradition.
