Thousands march in San Francisco's St. Patrick's Day Parade

Chicago Illinois. The River was first dyed green in 1962 and has become a St. Patrick's Day tradition in Chicago

"On March 3, in fact, the Queens County St. Patrick's Day Parade and Cultural Committee held its 43rd Annual St. Patrick's Day parade in Rockaway - an event that everyone, Irish or not, comes together to enjoy".

Weather for the parade is expected to be cold, in the 40s, but sunny. This year at least two groups in the parade have banners identifying marchers as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

There were bagpipers, Irish dancers and even an appearance from a leprechaun.

Sheila Murphy Crawford was this year's Grand Marshal.

Also at noon, the Myriad Botanical Gardens will host St. Patrick's Day at the Gardens, which will feature a number of live performances, including dancing and live music, crafts and Irish food.

Myla Ardong, 5, of Lawrence, stays warm inside a blanket while Diesel the dog enjoys the view at the Lawrence St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 17, 2018, in downtown Lawrence. Crawford founded the Murphy Irish Arts Center in 1978.

"Cleveland you know is such a special place for diversity and for honoring our ethnic heritage that it's been wonderful to be Irish here and contribute to the city as we have", Crawford said.

Cleveland Police reported a safe and problem-free parade.
