A nice way to view St. Patrick's Day is to consider it a celebration of luck. Even those who treat it as a celebration of booze are still celebrating the former on some level. Because, if you're in a position to pound a green beer, you are living the good life.

This past weekend's St. Patrick's Day Festival in Fort Lauderdale was a wonderful luckstravaganza. A mass of people cheering their own good fortune -- some more loudly than others. There were even lucky animals, horses with four leaf clovers stenciled onto their haunches and sparkling, green hooves. We offer you some of the tastiest luck-nuggets of the sunny day.

The Miami Dolphins and their fans are lucky enough at least to have some good seasons to look back on.

Some paraders celebrated much differently than others.

This girl (early for Ultra) discovered that bagpipe brigades are even cooler than dubstep rave DJs.

That beard! Those pants! This was a real game of "he or she?"

A lucky genetic situation. Presumably a hipster baby "he."

Everyone who witnessed the Boyd Anderson High School marching band jam out Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon," was in the right place at the right time. Jammin'!

Nowhere better to declare the luck o' the Irish quite like the rear end of a horse.
