PITTSBURGH, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of the upcoming St. Patrick's Day holiday, Visionworks, a leading national eye care retailer new to this market, is focusing on eye care for Pittsburgh's smiling Irish eyes. As part of its citywide grand opening celebration, Visionworks will host the showcase float in this Saturday's St. Patrick's Day parade in downtown Pittsburgh.
The 45' float features a giant rainbow, hundreds of shimmering shamrocks, and a lucky pot of gold. Parade watchers will want to keep an eye out for the colorful float because it will carry the 2010 Miss Smiling Irish Eyes Queen Meghan Schiller and her court of Caitlin O'Connor and Megan Willison.
"All of us at Visionworks appreciate the special place this parade plays in the hearts of this region's vibrant Irish community. We're delighted to host Miss Smiling Irish Eyes and her court," said John DiIanni, Regional Vice President.
