Charlotte goes green for St. Patrick's Day



Thousands of people lined the streets of uptown for the 18th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Groups from all over Charlotte participated, and everyone was wearing their green.

Families Channel 9 talked to said it was the perfect way to start the weekend.

“[I] was impressed, Charlotte put on a good show. It was fun,” said one parade goer.

The U.S. National Whitewater Center had a St. Patrick’s Day party as well, and held its fourth annual Green River Revival.

USNWC workers turned the water green, and the center also had a Color Me Green 5k and live music.
