Irish-Italian Parade!!

One of the unusual events around here is the Irish-Italian Parade in honor of St. Patrick's Day.  They use some of the Mardi Gras floats and it's a much shorter parade route.  They don't throw beads at this parade.  They throw groceries!!!   No kidding.  Everyone lines up along the street with laundry baskets, wagons, ice chests, boxes, nets... whatever you can find.   The riders toss goodies into your basket (or whatever) as the parade passes.  Whole heads of cabbage, potatoes, carrots, onions, bell peppers, turnips, bananas, pineapples, and even boxes of mac-n-cheese.  The kids also caught a pack of Little Debbie cakes!

Now that's my kind of throws!!
