FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - One of the biggest events for St. Patrick's Day is the Deer Park Irish Pub's St. Patrick's Day celebration.
They started a day early this year, but the traditional highlights happened Sunday. One of them being the smallest parade.
"21 years we're celebrating this historic shortest day parade in the world and in memory of that great man St. Patrick," Owner Tony Henry said.
"Today it's been a little challenging with the weather, this little snow fall, but you know what? I love it. We've never had the parade with snow so this is a first and today I think we're right around close to 500 to 1,000," he added.
Catherine Murphey couldn't pass up on the parade.
"I've always wanted to come here, but I couldn't, and I went out and heard they have a parade. I'm going to be in the parade, and just it just sprang from my mind this outfit. The only thing I have on that I didn't make is this t-shirt," she said.
Activities included a sprint race, keg toss, live music, food and beer, but among all the fun, Henry wants everyone to keep the history of this day in mind.
