Sunny skies are back in the forecast for the St. Patrick’s Day weekend parade in St. Joseph.

The Ancient Order of Hibernians in St. Joseph puts on the parade each year and President Dennis Delaney said there are a lot of family floats in the parade.

“Just a lot of Irish history, a lot of Irish families here in St. Joseph. We started the parade, this will be the 33rd year, and the main theme’s been about family. There’s a group of family floats, there’s a group of business floats and some of the bars… have their own float group,” Delaney said. “You’ll see a lot of green and a lot of smiles, the kids will see a lot of candy. I can’t imagine anyone not having a good time.”

The parade will begin at noon on Saturday at Frederick and Noyes. It will travel down Frederick to Francis St., Francis St. to 7th St., and end at 7th and Edmond.
