The 2007 parade passes the LAPD HQ site. Just a year later the building stands at full height.

Monday brings the St. Patrick's Day parade Downtown, with a route that runs from Main and Arcadia down to Pershing Square. According to a release on Councilman Tom LaBonge's website, "parade attractions include numerous celebrities, the Los Angeles Police Emerald Society bagpipes and drum band, high school and college marching bands, The Lakers Girls, Park Rangers, Police Choir Boys, LAFD Fire Hogs, color guards, LA City Councilmembers, historic LAPD and L.A. Fire Department trucks, cars, motorcycles, and much more."

After the 11:30am parade is a 12:30pm concert in Pershing Square featuring the Young Dubliners.

Angelenic recently ran through bars with St. Patricks celebrations, but if you're looking for something non-alcoholic a little earlier in the day, Arda's Cafe will be serving green bagels with cream cheese for $0.50. Is a green bagel truly a good idea? Only on St. Patricks Day.
