Delray Shows Florida How to Celebrate St Patrick’s Day!

The “Village by the Sea” showed how big it was yesterday when thousands of people created a sea of green along Atlantic Ave for the St. Patrick Day Parade.

People waited for hours securing their places along the street complete with picnics and well-stocked coolers.

Dressed in costumes and adorned with green beads adults and kids cheered as the parade marched by.

The police, military, fire department, business community, and local bands as well as invited guest groups handed out hats, beads and candy to children scrambling to catch them.

The expressions on the kids faces and the families and friends who gathered for the event to enjoy the day together made it the most fun for me.

And of course the beer flowed well into the evening.
