IT REALLY IS!
MONDAY, MARCH 17TH
SAVANNAH, GEORGIA'S 2014
SAINT PATRICK'S DAY PARADE
THE OFFICIAL BEGINNING OF SPRING!
(IN SAVANNAH, THAT IS!)
Beannachtai na Feile Padraig oraibh!
(St. Patrick’s Day Blessings upon you).
The celebration of Saint Patrick's Day began first in Boston in 1737.
This year will be the 190th Saint Patrick's Day parade in Savannah, Ga. It started as a religious holiday and many Irish Catholics still begin the day by going to mass. The Grand Marshall, Dave Roberts and his staff will exit The Cathedral Of Saint John The Baptist, after Saint Patrick's Day Mass and take their place as the leaders of this year's parade.
I will tempt you with a few scenes of years past
promising you 2014 scenes soon!
