The St Patrick's Day parade in Birmingham is the third largest in the world.
Len Cale, dressed as St Patrick, has helped organise the parade which is only beaten by those in Dublin and New York.
Tens of thousands of people braved the cold and rain to watch the floats and marchers.
Many feel the parade is best viewed when holding a pint of the black stuff.
Traditional Irish music is a key feature of the parade. Eight bands, including two from Ireland, took part.
But the event is not an exclusively Irish affair - here local group the Dhol Blasters added a Punjabi twist.
Sixty floats and 1,000 marchers followed the route from Digbeth into the city centre and back again.
