'Creative floats, terrific bands' entertain Crosslake St. Patrick's Day parade-goers


More than 8,000 lucky leprechauns united Saturday, March 16, in Crosslake to conquer Mother Nature and enjoy the Brainerd Lakes Chamber’s Crosslake St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Celebration.

The snow-covered streets and sidewalks as well as the 60-degree drop in temperature from the 2012 parade did not deter those who enjoyed the sun-filled day and the nearly 100 parade entries.
