Wilkes Barre, Luzerne County- Umbrellas, ponchos and blankets filled the streets of downtown Wilkes Barre Saturday during their annual St. Patrick's parade.
Parade goers dressed in green were quickly covered in white from the snow fall that fell throughout the entire parade.The chilly temps also sent people inside bars, stores and restaurants.
Kevin Bogari headed inside Dunkin Donuts to warm up with his family.
"Could of been a little better. Wasn't expecting snow today, so we had to come in here and let our toes warm up, says Bogari.
His view of the parade couldn't be better or dryer, and it's not too crowded.
"The lines for the bars are a lot longer than the lines for Dunkin Donuts so this worked out well for us, he adds.
Rosie McGrane is celebrating her 12th birthday here with all her girlfriends. Although they're making the best out of the parade, the weather is disappointing.
"The weather does bother me. I want to get back inside so bad," says McGrane.
"Well, it's really cold, it's snowing and my hands are about to fall off, says Amirah Garrett.
"It's awful. I wish it was like last year's; sunny and warm. Is it ruining your time here or are you still having fun? No, I'm still having fun with my friends, says Isabella Weido
While the kids may be having fun, it's not so much fun for the workers of these novelty carts. Everything is pretty much covered in snow, and workers say they'll loose hundreds of dollars because of that.
"It makes me a little upset, but there's nothing I can do about it. I can't control the weather," says Larry Gill.
Thankfully for Gill, he will have a few more parade's to sell his novelties, but this weather is defiantly the worst he's seen.
