St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t officially arrive until Friday, but that hardly stopped Naperville residents from celebrating all things Irish last Saturday along downtown streets for a parade.

Even Curious George (above) is an honorary   IIrishman on St. Patrick’s Day. A family put on their finest top hats, wigs and other greenery (right) to celebrate the parade. A lower right, marching Girl Scouts (lower right) added cookies to their attire to help promote their annual fundraising effort. Below, all the parade action was covered by an announcing crew at the reviewing stand.
