WILLIAMSPORT -- The St. Patrick's parades kept rolling throughout our area on Saturday in Lycoming County.

Newswatch 16 stopped by downtown Williamsport for the third annual celebration of Irish heritage.

West 4th Street was lined with adults and kids clad in green watching as the bagpipers and performers passed by.

Some families drove about one hour to be here for the St. Patrick's Day parade in Williamsport.

"You get to wear green and green's my favorite color and you get to get candy," said Jordan Doucette of Berwick.

"I brought the kids to this parade because this seemed to be the most family oriented parade, we have six of them, so here we are," said Kim Coxwell of Bloomsburg.
