It was cold but dry as the 175th Cleveland St. Patrick's Day parade stepped off just after 1 p.m. Friday.

Everything went smoothly today as far as the Cleveland Police was concerned:

WKYC was as interested in the paradegoers as we were the parade itself!

Take a look and see who braved the cold and watched the parade.

WKYC's Dave DeNatale had some fun with the above pictures as he played "Good Idea, Bad Idea."
