Observations from a Very Ludacris St. Patrick's Day

This weekend, Dallas celebrated one of it's most beloved local traditions with the Lower Greenville St. Patrick's Day Parade. The booze was flowing, the traffic was blocked off, and the turn up was very real. To further add to the excitement, our annual parade concert stage was headlined by none other than Atlanta's own Ludacris. We had Paige Skinner and Vanessa Quilantan on the scene, and here is what they saw.

The Drunkening
Everyone was drunk. One couple was so drunk the woman tried to climb on her man's shoulders to see Luda over the crowd. Drinks in hands, the man crouched down and the woman began to straddle him with his head in between her legs. Wobbly and trying to gain their balance, they both fell in a puddle of water. With their soaking backs and legs, they got up, dusted each other off, and tried again. Paige Skinner

The Dancing
Of course people are going to dance at a Ludacris concert, but dance-offs are such a big part of the St. Patrick's Day Parade tradition. If you walked down Greenville Ave to take in the sights before you made your way to the concert stage, you know exactly what I'm talking about. There's music of all kinds coming from every different direction, and the friendly impromptu dance battles pop up all over the street. Vanessa Quilantan

The contact high
The aroma of weed was enough to get high without take a puff. And thanks to one man, puffs weren't even necessary. He was offering what looked like chocolate chip cookies from a Ziploc bag. After a nearby guy passed because of his professional job, it became apparent they weren't Mama's home-baked cookies. PS
