Every year we go to the St. Patrick's Day Parade in nearby West Orange. We usually eat out at the diner on Main Street and then find a spot on the street to put our folding chairs and settle in for the long haul. We always either go with friends or meet up with them there, and we often see people we know in the parade, since many of our own town's officials, firemen, policemen, etc., march in the parade as well.
This year was no exception. We headed out at about 11 a.m., along with DH's dad, and arrived at the diner in plenty of time. We finished up just as the parade was getting under way about 20 minutes down the road, and ensconced ourselves with our friends across the street from the diner, where we proceeded to watch and wave as the parade passed by.
For some reason I feel a need to document every West Orange St. Patrick's Day Parade we have attended, so as usual I had my camera with me. Here are some highlights!
Next on the agenda is an evening at the Shillelagh Club seeing our favorite Irish band, Paddy and the Pale Boys and enjoying some good corned beef.
An early Happy St. Patrick's Day greeting to you all!
