Flickr Friday: I Love a Parade – Especially a St Paddy’s Day Parada in Jackson, Mississippi

St Paddy’s Parade

Sure it’s the summer time. And sure this thing took place way back in March of this year. But it’s never a bad time to post naughty nurses in the 4th largest St Paddy’s day parade in the U.S.

A little history lesson for you all:

The parade was founded by Jackson promoter, night club and restaurant co-owner, and executive director of the Mississippi Arts Commission Malcolm White. White recalls the first St. Paddy’s parade caused a downtown traffic jam, because it was held on a Friday, and nobody thought about controlling traffic. The result was the worst downtown traffic jam Jackson had ever seen. In subsequent years, the parade grew so fast it had to be limited to 50 floats and it drew an estimated 50,000 people to downtown Jackson last year.

Another history lesson: There was tons of green bush at this event.

Pictures after the jump.
