We are finally getting around to posting about the St. Patrick’s Parade on March 20th.
It was in South Boston, so we took the T there. Erica was worried about how crowded it would be getting there and once there, but we got there an hour early and it wasn’t very busy.
From the website:
The South Boston, St. Patrick’s Parade is Listed as the second largest parade in the country, being viewed by nearly 600,000 to one million people every year; in addition to having the entire parade seen on Live TV.
It seemed like forever:
The route is along a street that has businesses for about half the route and then turns into residential. Most of the houses had steps and porches, and lots of people were using them.
Before the parade started, we walked about 1 or 2 miles along the route and grabbed lunch and a spot to watch. We decided to walk back to where we came from when the parade was still going on. It was double-time, but we stopped when interesting things came by.
A fun afternoon, we glad we went!
