the parade

commenced and there was no rain just cold temps and wind.  Behind the people were trucks with bunting, fire engines, ambulances and a few tractors, all with ads for their services.   The people walking looked cold but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.  Another fun small community event, well done by everyone.

  10. My goodness, there's so much to see. I feel like you've provided us a ringside seat for the entire parade. What a deal! Some things caught my eye, though: St. Patrick hisself, the cute kids all bundled up, the bagpipers, so long as I don't have to listen to them (sorry 'bout that!), that old car which looks like maybe a Rolls, that yuge tractor, and the boat builders. Super post, my friend! I enjoyed all of it!

  14. What a fun parade! I was admiring the blue tractor and then came the "size matters" one. How funny. You are right, everyone does look like they are having fun.

  18. That was some parade, in some ways like the small town parades you see for certain holidays where I live in the Northeastern United States. Our St. Patrick's Day parade was about three weeks ago and we had a major snowstorm the day before - crews worked extra hard to get the snow cleared away and the pedestrians appreciated it, too.

  19. Looks a fabulous parade, so nice to see folks happy smiling faces.
    You were fortunate with the weather - we've had snow in my part of the UK and it's still snowing now!

    Hope you have a good new week.

    All the best Jan

  24. I love these. Our parade - and city - is much bigger but much less purely Irish.

  25. Love seeing your parade photos. Don't recognize the 1930s gold car, but the tractors are familiar. The temperatures must have been chilly.
