Well, maybe... The parade was founded by Jackson promoter, night club and restaurant co-owner, and executive director of the Mississippi Arts Commission Malcolm White. White recalls the first St. Paddy's parade caused a downtown traffic jam, because it was held on a Friday, and nobody thought about controlling traffic. The result was the worst downtown traffic jam Jackson had ever seen. In subsequent years, the parade grew so fast it had to be limited to 50 floats and it drew an estimated 50,000 people to downtown Jackson last year. Jill Conner Browne came to the first parade as a Sweet Potato Queen, and has now sold over two million books about Sweet Potato Queens. Sweet Potato Queen wannbes come from all over the country for the parade, and she is internationally known. It is all a fund raiser for the Blair E. Batson Children's Hospital in Jackson. It has raised over $300,000 for that faciity. It is the fourth largest St. Patrick's Day Parade in the country, behind, New York, Boston, and Savannah. Saint Patrick's Day (Irish: La ’le Padraig or La Fheile Phadraig), colloquially St. Paddy's Day or Paddy's Day, is an annual feast day which celebrates Saint Patrick (circa 385–461 AD), one of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on March 17. The day is the national holiday of Ireland. It is a bank holiday in Northern Ireland and a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Montserrat, and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. In the rest of Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, the United States and New Zealand, it is widely celebrated but is not an official holiday. It became a feast day in the Roman Catholic Church due to the influence of the Waterford-born Franciscan scholar Luke Wadding in the early part of the 17th century, and is a holy day of obligation for Roman Catholics in Ireland. The date of the feast is occasionally moved by church authorities when March 17 falls during Holy Week; this happened in 1940 when Saint Patrick's Day was observed on April 3 in order to avoid it coinciding with Palm Sunday, and happened again in 2008, having been observed on 15 March. March 17 will not fall during Holy Week again until 2160. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated worldwide by Irish people and increasingly by non-Irish people (usually in Australia and North America). Celebrations are generally themed around all things Irish and, by association, the colour green. Both Christians and non-Christians celebrate the secular version of the holiday by wearing green or orange, eating Irish food and/or green foods, imbibing Irish drink (such as Guinness) and attending parades. The St. Patrick's Day parade in Dublin, Ireland is part of a five-day festival; over 500,000 people attended the 2006 parade. The largest St. Patrick's Day parade is held in Chicago and it is watched by over 2.5 million spectators. The St. Patrick's Day parade was first held in Boston in 1761, organized by the Charitable Irish Society. New York's celebration began on 18 March 1762 when Irish soldiers in the British army marched through the city. The predominantly French-speaking Canadian city of Montreal, in the province of Quebec has the longest continually running Saint Patrick's day parade in North America, since 1824; The city's flag has the Irish emblem, the shamrock, in one of its corners. Ireland's cities all hold their own parades and festivals, including Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Derry, Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick, and Waterford. Parades also take place in other Irish towns and villages. "Leprechauns" kick off week-long festivities by renaming New London, Wisconsin to New DublinOther large parades include those in Savannah, Georgia , New London, Wisconsin (which changes its name to New Dublin the week of St. Patrick's Day) Dallas, Cleveland, Manchester, Birmingham, London, Coatbridge, Jackson, Mississippi, Boston, Houston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Rolla, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Denver, St. Paul, Sacramento, San Francisco, Scranton, Seattle, Butte, Detroit, Toronto, Vancouver, Syracuse, Newport, Holyoke and throughout much of the Western world. The parade held in Sydney, Australia is recorded as being the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. As well as being a celebration of Irish culture, Saint Patrick's Day is a Christian festival celebrated in the Catholic Church, the Church of Ireland, and some other denominations. The day almost always falls in the season of Lent. Some bishops will grant an indult, or release, from the Friday no-meat observance when St. Patrick's Day falls on a Friday; this is sometimes colloquially known as a "corned-beef indult". When 17 March falls on a Sunday, church calendars (though rarely secular ones) move Saint Patrick's Day to the following Monday—and when the 17th falls during Holy Week (very rarely), the observance will be moved to the next available date or, exceptionallTag Heuer Aquaracer 300m
