Boaters set out into the Lake of the Ozarks in decorated boats Saturday to gather with other "green" mariners to commemorate the patron saint of Ireland.

The St. Patrick's Parade on the Water attracted crowds of partygoers from the Lake Area as well as visitors and second-home owners. The Myers of St. Joseph said they have been coming down for 10 years now to the annual event.
