Bay City Celebrates Annual Rite of Spring

Bay City celebrated the first day of spring with the annual Saint Patrick Day Parade. The parade route was packed with what felt like a record crowd as the two hour parade made its way down Center Avenue from Essexville to downtown.

Last year the week before Saint Patrick Day was cold and snowy then turned fair for the parade. This year the week before was beautiful then on parade day the skies were overcast, the wind light, and the temperature in the upper 30's. But that didn't discourage Bay City from coming out for it's favorite event of the season.

MyBayCity.com has been covering the parade since 2003. We've learned that what our readers want and like is our pictures. So we rather than write a lot, we'll just post a collection of those popular photos.

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.

GREAT photos of the St Pats Parade! Our brother-in-law is featured in the one you called "I'm Irish", wearing a green hat, white long tails jacket. His name is Rob Schmidt (maybe I should say Rob O'Schmidt..."

I would love to print that photo. Can you send me the photo?

Thank you also for our grandchildren's photo recently of Frosty the Snowman (Katie & Zach of Saginaw). Very nice!

Thank you.
