COLORADO SPRINGS — At the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in Downtown Colorado Springs, 100 women will serve as Grand Marshal.

There was an event Thursday night to honor them at the DoubleTree Hotel on Lake at I25. Our Elizabeth Watts was honored to serve as emcee.

The Colorado Springs women will commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the women's right to vote. They'll also wear white to recreate a picture taken at Garden of the Gods in 1920 for the inaugural meeting of League of Women Voters.

The St. Patrick's Day parade and festival takes place Saturday, March 14th.
