Delisa Drewes, a longtime St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee member, said this year’s parade drew 162 entries. Some of those entries received awards in the annual float contest.

Drewes said she was pleased to see several entries coming from outside the city of Lawrence this year.

“We had a good, eclectic mix” of entries, Drewes said.
