ST. PATTY'S DAY AT PERSHING SQUARE
Rain did not stop the green celebration
Los Angeles - Finn MacCool rocked the 8th Annual Pershing Square Saint Patrick's Day concert on Friday. Pershing Square, a Department of Recreation and Parks facililty, was the last stop in the 2006 City of Los Angeles St. Patrick's Day Parade.
The free concert ran from 12:30 to 2 pm and brought out the green in just about everyone. Local radio station Jack FM was there handing out green goodies along with the Budweiser girls who were handing out O'Doul's non-alcoholic beer.
In addition to the concert and festivities, the water in the fountain at Pershing was dyed green, representative of what is done to the Chicago river each year on March 17.
