Saturday March 13th saw the 48th annual St. Patrick's Day parade in the LoDo area of downtown Denver, Colorado. The day was stunning, with bright blue skies, warm sunshine and throngs of happy people decked out in their best green outfits. Estimates put the crowd size at around 212,000 people, one of the largest crowds ever to attend. The Denver parade is one of the largest in the U.S.A.. Colorado wedding photographer Garrett Hacking was on the scene. "St. Patrick's Day is a favorite holiday of mine (I have Irish in me and it is my favorite part!) and the parade is extra special. My dad, who passed away a few years ago, loved the parade in St. Paul, Minnesota. We would go every year and then go to a legendary pub called the Half Time Rec and listen to a fabulous Irish band - The Irish Brigade. I miss those days sure as I miss him" continues the Denver portrait photographer. "I have been to the Denver parade many, many times and it is hoot!" The band photographer also has a new favorite Irish group in his new adopted state. "The Indulgers! They are bomb diggitty! Be sure to check them out!"
