A nice way to view St. Patrick's Day is to consider it a celebration of luck. Even those who treat it as a celebration of booze are still celebrating the former on some level. Because, if you're in a position to pound a green beer, you are living the good life.

This past weekend's St. Patrick's Day Festival in Fort Lauderdale was a wonderful luckstravaganza. A mass of people cheering their own good fortune -- some more loudly than others. There were even lucky animals, horses with four leaf clovers stenciled onto their haunches and sparkling, green hooves. We offer you some of the tastiest luck-nuggets of the sunny day.

When asked if he would be getting lucky, Jose replied, smiling: "Who knows?" C'mon, Jose. Who doesn't know? The answer is YES.

Luck of the Irish in full force? Actually, this man is Scottish. "We don't have our own day to drink," he said. Fortunately, he is a master of disguise.

Folks were reminded how lucky they are to have trash receptacles.

This green shirted shredder was smiling about a car-free bridge for the day.

This battleship was blaring "Proud to Be an American." Which is awesome, but not so easy to jig to.

Battleships and camels on the same block?! What's next, a Sith lord and his posse?

I hate to be a negative nugget but what the heck is up with having a Saint Patrick''s Day Parade & Festival 8 days before Saint Patrick's Day? My wife and I were very much looking forward to this and well, Delray Beach get's our money this year! 

I really don't get it unless some wing-nut in city hall got the bright idea of soaking two weekends of profit out of a holiday that's growing in popularity. Nevertheless I have a little advice for city hall; How about a little publicity next time around?
