The parade also included Griffs Army, military vehicles and the Queen of the Parade.

It was nice to experience the cultural traditions such as Celtic dancing!' \280^Community Bv: Michelle Norton And what parade would be complete without music to set the festivities in motion. Bands such as the Houston Highlander Pipe Band, St. Thomas Episcopal High School Pipe Band and The Bayou City Blues provided the background music as the Houston Police Department Honor Guard and Flag Corps and the McTaggarot Irish Dancers led the parade. City officials, Gordon Quan, Rob Todd, Bert Keller and County Attorney Michael Fleming were also on hand to celebrate this long-time Houston tradition.
