Final touches being made to floats as the St. Patrick’s Day parade quickly approaches

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The St. Patrick's Day parade is just one day away.

Before the parade can "float" down Broadway, families and businesses must put the final touches on their entries.

FOX's Kathy Quinn takes you inside J.E. Dunn's logistic site for a sneak peek at their float themed, "peace, love, Irish."

"So this year's theme is peace, love, Irish, and when we set down with the concept to conceptualize what we would have to do for our float, we kind of went back to the seventies with the peace and love," Kathleen Ismert said. "So we came up with this. We have all of our employees and Mr. Dunn dancing at the disco, that's kinda what we did."

Once again this year, FOX 4 is honored to be the official broadcast and livestream partner of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, presented by McCarthy Auto Group.

Coverage of the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade will begin at 11:30 a.m. If you aren’t participating or waiting along the route to cheer on the parade, then be sure to watch it on your television or wherever you are on your phone or computer. Remember: fox4kc.com/irish
