Revellers paint the town green

Leslie Lopez calls herself a Mexican-Canadian, but yesterday she was all decked out in green at the 184th St. Patrick's Parade.

"There's nothing Irish about me, zero per cent, but I've been to Ireland and I like Irish culture," she said, sporting a kicky green tinsel wig, Irish-themed buttons, a shamrock lei and green beads.

Lopez was one of an estimated 300,000 people who lined Ste. Catherine St. to see 120 groups, 16 marching bands and 36 floats.
