Hannah Ellison is garnished in green as she waits with other first-graders from Kalifornsky Beach Elementary School for the St. Patrick's Day parade to begin in Soldotna on Wednesday afternoon.
Tom Redmond encourages the crowd to touch his hand for good luck as he makes his way down the Kenai Spur Highway with the parade. The parade has been a Soldotna tradition for the past 14 years. Wednesday's festivities also included an Irish dinner, auction and fireworks.
