The date was 17th of March. We all woke up and got dressed in green, orange and white for the parade. My mam painted our faces with green shamrocks. My sister and I went to get flags and leprechaun hats. We were all ready to go. On the way to the parade we got sweets in the shop. We were waiting for a while. Then we heard the brass brand. The scouts were first in the parade. After the scout the clubs came, I saw a lot of my friends. At the end of the parade the vintage cars,gaint trackers came. A women dressed as a clown was giving out sweets. When she got to me. The bag was empty. What a surprise .
