How did you guys find the parade? =) The rain might have drenched us but it was still fun seeing the children have fun dancing in their costumes. It was my first time to watch an Irish dance live so it was a thrilling experience for me. Not to mention the bagpipe players. =)

It's a shame I missed this; just saw the topic.

Are there actually bagpipe players in Singapore?

Bagpipe players in SG? Sure! Asian players though.. =) There was also a Scottish man dressed up as St Patrick. I heard somebody behind me say 'It's Santa Claus!' LOL. =)

mymarikit,
Sounds like there's gonna be a lot of drinking on Wednesday! =)

Yup; they came in just after the Imperial Storm Troopers (I ain't kidding). I did notice that only a few of the dudes had the courage to wear kilts.

I made sure I had my photo taken with those Storm Troopers! xD

As for the kiltless guys, maybe they felt too cold wearing kilts especially with the rainy weather that day. =)
