Apparently over 75,000 turned up to this year's St Patrick's Day parade in Birmingham. Renowned for its usual busy turn out and festive style spirit, the green, white and orange was draped across the city today.
The Irish don't do things half heartedly either. As we walked down Digbeth high street, we literally had to jump over the metal railings and onto the main road. The pavements were brimming full of people who have just ordered there drinks inside and now ready to chill in the sunshine - can't blame them.
I didn't get to take many photos due to the need of a beer and some curry mutton with dumplings - priorities. Below are a few random shots.
