JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The streets of capital city turned green Saturday afternoon during the annual Mal's Saint Paddy's Day Parade.

For the 29th year revelers screamed for beads and waved to passing floats during the annual street party.

Hinds County law enforcement officials estimate it a crowd of about 65,000, possibly the largest in the parades history.

This year's theme was "Hey, Hey The Blues Is All Right".

Parade founder Malcolm White said, "It is the biggest he's ever seen. The parade was a success, was seamless and flowed."

"I brought my grand daughter down here. She's six, never been before. She got all these beads. She loves it down here," said parade goer, Myra Wilmoth.

"I'm enjoying the St. Paddy's Day Parade. Just shows the colors and having fun, supporting Hal and Mal's and letting the parade come to us," said the Spectator Queens.
