Vice President Joe Biden will attend the Pittsburgh St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, the campaign to re-elect President Obama announced today.

Biden, who is Irish, will greet spectators as part of a campaign event. Volunteers will register voters, recruit other volunteers and hand out "O'Bama" campaign stickers and placards.

The parade, which organizers bill as the second-largest in the nation with 23,000 participants and 200 marching units, begins at 10 a.m. It starts on Liberty Avenue, runs the length of Grant Street and down the Boulevard of the Allies to Stanwix Street. More than 100,000 spectators are expected.

Biden last visited Pittsburgh on Nov. 4 when he spoke at the University of Pittsburgh on the importance of higher education.
