The St. Patrick’s Day Parade, one of the oldest traditions in Bricktown, was cancelled this year due to streetcar track construction but the spirit still lives on.

Downtown Oklahoma City Inc. inflated 715 beach balls and have them all along the Bricktown Canal as part of a weekend-long display for St. Patrick’s Day.

“They are in all different colors and sizes,” said Downtown Oklahoma City Inc. vice president Jill DeLozier. “We encourage the public to interact with them, we’ve already seen a couple people pick them up and thrown them into the canal. We’re OK with people playing them, but we don’t people leaning into the canal and falling. But if any end up out of the canal, we encourage picking them up and throwing them back in.”
