St. Patrick's Parade

Montreal has one of the biggest parade for St. Patrick's Day. We've been having a parade since 1824 - so it was the 184th edition! Hadn't gone in a few years but decided to brave the cold and go this year. Never stay too long because it's very crowded and people drink a lot... But it's still a fun family day!! On the news, they were saying we were over 300,000 people! WOW!!

A quick look at the crowds all in green hats!! ;)

The first arrival of the parade!



More of the crowds - fun to see the kids in green attire!






Got a hat... so had to have a picture taken of me! ;)




Will post more tomorrow....
