Montreal’s St Patrick’s Day
This coming Saturday is St Patrick’s day and on the Sunday following that, March 18th is the 187th St Patrick’s Day parade in Montreal. The Irish are one of the largest communities in North America, and St Patrick’s day one of the most celebrated holidays. The day has been celebrated in Montreal as far back as 1759!
It is one of my favourite parades, not only because of the colourful floats and overall sense of cheer and fun but also because of the predominance of the colour green which to me is a cheerful reminder that spring is around the corner!
Do you enjoy all of the St Patrick’s day celebrations and parade?
