Tens of thousands of folks donned their green and got their Irish on in Worcester. With sunny skies and mild temperatures, it was a great day for the 31st annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. There were dozens of floats, dancers and marching bands. All in all, there were about 8,000 parade participants, including several candidates from the Massachusetts Senate race.
