WAUKON (KWWL) - St. Patrick's Day isn't until Wednesday, but that isn't keeping many eastern Iowans from celebrating.

Waukon held its annual St. Patrick's Day parade Sunday. The event grows every year. This year it drew 10,000 to 15,000 and is known as the largest St. Pat's celebration in Northeast Iowa.

Local businesses and families made up about 150 floats. They decorated horses, tractors and trucks to parade their Irish heritage through town.
