2013 Lucky Joe’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Winners
Fort Collins, CO The results are in! The streets of downtown Fort Collins turned green today for the 2013 Lucky Joe’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Irish enthusiasts greeted parade entries and were eager to join in the day’s excitement. Thousands of community members came out to see our Grand Marshal CSU’s Temple Grandin, many colorful floats and Irish horses. The parade was a great success, hosted over 90 entries and entertained lots of Downtown spectators. A panel of five judges had a difficult time choosing winners this year and stated that “It was the hardest judging year in the history of the parade”. Among nearly 100 parade entrants, the following won top honors and honorable mentions.
- 1st Place/Best Overall: The Cheer and Dance Connection
- 2nd Place: Great Clips
- 3rd Place: Sheet Metal Workers Local #9
- Poudre Fire Authority
- Fort Collins Musician’s Association
- Kuck Mechanical Contractors
