The 2014 St. Patrick's Day Parade in Atlanta is at a new location this year, but participants and many who watch the St. Patrick's Day parade will be sure to be wearing the green. Before the 2012 parade, Alexis Minors was among those who helped out during a trial unfurling of what officials call the largest Irish flag in the worl.
