Today’s parade was so much fun! There weren’t nearly as many people in the city centre as we have had to deal with back home in the big city so that made all the difference. From what I could tell the children attending had a lot of fun too. So many fun costumes and green green green everywhere! The day started off soft with a light drizzle, then the sun came out, then it rained a bit more – a typical Galway day!
The parade didn’t really go all that far, only about 1 kilometer, so the people at the beginning actually doubled back before the whole parade passed by!
From the original to modern day equipment
These guys were really popular!
This wonderful group had a bunch of people sweeping up the garbage – many of the members of the group were disabled kids. They all looked like they were having a great time!
The hometown team!
The traditional bagpipes!
There was a group of firefighters from NYC and Jersey City as well as this group of State Patrol officers.
