Irish eyes will be smiling on the Quad Cities this weekend.

St. Patrick's Day is Saturday and no one throws a party quite like the Quad Cities. The weather will be almost perfect, in the 60's, and mostly sunny skies. Of course we do live in the Mid-West...that could all change between now and then.

According to, prep work for the 36th annual CASI St. Patrick's Day race have begun. The race starts at 9am. If you want to register for the race, go here.

The Bi-State St. Patrick's Day Parade kicks off at 11:30 in Downtown Rock Island, and heading over the Centennial Bridge to Downtown Davenport. Watch for us to roll through the parade. I'm going to walk the entire parade route again this year. We may have some koozies to throw out.

I can't wait to see the Quad Cities show up and celebrate spring. Grab your green and let's go!  Just remember to be responsible.
