Fifty Shades of Green: The Delray Beach St. Patrick’s Day Celebration

March 16, 2013 by Joan Nova in Florida | 13 Comments

St. Patrick’s Day — the world becomes a sea of green and everyone, Irish or not, celebrates. Even I put on a green t-shirt and set off for my first St. Patrick’s Day parade. I know. I’m a little old for it to be ‘my first’.

I walked the parade route up and down several times and had a surprisingly good time taking photos but then after 3 hours, I pooped out and left … before the parade actually started. Here’s a few photos and a fun and colorful slideshow of the festivities (pre-parade).

The crowd was huge and enthusiastic. Everyone and their dog was there.

It was the year of honoring the firefighters.

  2. what a great job you did! however these photos are a glaring reminder to never leave the house unless I am fully prepared to….and triple check myself in the mirror before doing so.

  3. It was great fun and wonderful to see so many people having such a great time. Delray really knows how to do things. Fun piece, I didn’t see you in the crowds!
