  These are just two of the "leprechauns" who came out for the annual Dundee St. Paddy's Day Parade on Sunday, March 12. The parade always draws thousands of people to the small town for the fun and festivities. This year, it was a little bit cold so everyone was bundled up but still had a great time.
