Residents of St. Albans braved the wind and cold yesterday evening to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a parade, traditional Irish dinner, and various activities in City Hall. The mood was light, as dancers from the Celtic Cats Irish dancing group from UVM came to entertain and teach the young ones basic dancing steps. From left to right, Olivia McDonald, Kalli Taber and Molly Smith, all 9,  and 7-year-old, McKenzie Smith, dressed-up as ‘girl leprechauns’ for the St Patrick’s Day parade and celebration at city hall yesterday.
