Kansas City's St. Patrick's Day Parade

st pats

Around 2:30 p.m. the first parade was over and another began. More than a dozen mechanized street sweepers from American Sweeping Inc. worked their way north on Grand, clearing the discarded and blowing cans, bottles, bags and miles of silly string, sucking up debris in figure eights, avoiding one another with the grace of dancers. Within an hour, you couldn't even tell a party had happened.

Santa-Cali-Gon Days

Today, if you walk around the historic Square, the streets are tidy and clean, an amazing feat considering the 250,000 festival attendees. Thanks to Gale Holsman, owner of American Sweeping, whose crew picked up 12 to 15 tons of trash daily, cleaned up spills, power washed and vacuumed the streets. They did an amazing job. The Square almost shines!
