Thousands gather for an old parade with a new name

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of people packed the parade route for the annual Dallas St. Patrick's Day Parade on Greenville Avenue.

There were more than a hundred floats that entertained adults and kids while tossing out candy, coupons and a lot of beads.

Parade organizers wanted this year's event to be more family friendly instead of just a green beer-chugging party.

With a lot of families at the parade, parents seemed happy about the efforts made by parade officials to make the parade more G-rated.

There also was a larger police presence to keep the partiers from getting too rowdy.
