2012 St. Patrick's Day Parade
March 17, 2012
It may well have been the warmest St. Patrick's Day Celebration in history. It certainly was for this century. And best of all, no snow falling. A record high of 82 degrees saw a great St. Pat's Day parade in downtown Hancock.
 
he Hancock High Color Guard and Honor Team kicked off the festivities, starting this year at high noon, rather than the traditional 11:30 am. The Hancock City Council and Administration show the colors on Irish Day. The Hancock City Clrk & Treasurers Office (and helpers) joined in the fun on this really gorgeous day. The Hancock City Business & Professional Association show their banner, along with a lot of green.
The Jeffers High School Band played favorite toons for the largest street crowd in recent memory, thanks to Mother Nature, who must have been Irish too, to have sent this weather. More members of the Hancock Business & Professional Association. The Hancock High School Marching Band. The Celtic Quarter Bagpipers perform and play for the crowd.
This group calls themselves the Sheninagans. The long time performing St. Patrick's Day Foursome, sometimes also known as 'The Backroom Boys'. This Leprechaun makes sure the youngsters get the proverbial 'Pot o' Gold', the tasty goodies that abound at all Parades. And everyone heads to O'Gino's Restaurant for the Irish Day Corned Beef and Cabbage lunch, with a favorite beverage, perhaps their traditional green beer. This was the 149th. Annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration in Hancock, and very likely the warmest, under clear skies. The Top of the Morning to You.
