The 2011 Shawnee St. Patrick's Parade rolled down Johnson Drive on Sunday, March 13. Despite chilly weather -- 43 degrees, with a brisk breeze -- area residents donned their brightest green and lined the street to watch the procession. The Knights of Columbus served up corned beef and cabbage after the parade, and the Great Shawnee Duck Race launched later in the afternoon.
