2008 Saint Patrick's Day Parade In Pictures

Bay Citians Emerge From Winter Hibernation To Welcome Spring

March 16, 2008
By: Stephen Kent


It's that time of year again when Bay Citians emerge from their winter naps to sniff the air and prepare for spring. Thousands of them seem to come from nowhere and converge on the traditional celebration grounds along Center Avenue to watch their fellow citizens walk in the annual Saint Patrick Day Parade.

This year the concern is for the future of the parade. Every growing expenses and shrinking revenues pose serious challenges to the committee. There's a lot more to putting on a parade these days than just getting out and walking. We all trust that ways and means will be found to continue this tradition. It's one of the most popular events of the year and brings out more citizens than almost anything else that Bay City does!

MyBayCity extends thanks to our sponsors who made continued coverage of this event possible.

Just for the fun of it, you might want to check out these St. Pat's stories from previous years. It's interesting just to see how digital cameras have evolved since 2002:
For another take on the subject of parades, check out what was going on in 1978 in this 1978 Flashback article from the archives of the Bay County Sports Page & Bay City Enterprise newspapers. Published from 1976 through 1984, those papers were the "grandparents" of today's MyBayCity.com.
