St. Patrick's Day Parade organizer Margaret Gannon

Cold won’t deter a few dozen Gannons when it comes to a St. Patrick’s Day parade --- especially when there was a police escort this year.

Winnipeg’s third annual St. Patrick’s Day parade wound throughout the downtown south of Portage Avenue Saturday afternoon before reconvening in Shannon’s Irish Pub.

Organizer Margaret Gannon said that about 150 people take part each year, complete with human-powered green floats made from recycled products. Her family came here from Ireland in 1957 and had about 30 family members in the parade.
