CHICAGO -- With the bagpipers a-piping, the drummers a-drumming and the ladies a-leaping, the South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade was off and running.

Thousands take in the parade each and every year; it’s a yearly event that families look forward to.

But to get a good seat you have to get creative -- or get here early.

In an election year, politics were also part of the parade.

Rahm Emanuel was on float No. 3, while his challenger, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, was way back on 92.

And while Governor Bruce Rauner isnt running for anything now, he didn’t exactly stick around to talk about his proposal to implement right to work zones with union members marching this year.

Politics aside, the parade which promised good family fun provided just that.
