Crowds line the streets of St. Paul for St. Patrick's Day parade

Despite the temperature, people still turned out to celebrate the coldest St. Patrick's Day in 30 years.

ST PAUL, Minn. — Hundreds of Minnesotans turned out to honor St. Patrick in weather that feels more suitable for St. Nick. The temperature reached a high of 15 degrees but with the wind chill, it felt like -3 degrees below zero. 

St. Paul's St. Patrick's Day parade returned to its original route this year. It kicked off at Rice Park and ran down 5th Street to CHS Field. The event overflowed into CHS Field for the 2023 Ballpark Hooley. 

Business owners in St. Paul say it was a quite morning because of the cold, but they expect more sales to come in throughout the weekend.
