Iowa State College marching band is seen leading Iowa State's engineering students along the cinder path during the 1910 St. Patrick's Day parade on campus marching towards downtown.   The cinder path was a roadway connecting Ames with the Iowa State campus near what is now Sixth Street and Brookridge Avenue.  St. Patrick was the patron saint of engineers.  This parade occurred on St. Patrick's Day every year until the beginning of VEISHEA in 1922.
