Last sunday was Montreal’s 191st Saint Patrick’s Day Parade – the oldest in Canada. The weather was similar to last year…sunny, but freezing cold, unlike in 2012 when it was almost summer-like.
I was a bit late getting down to Saint Catherine street where the parade began at 12pm on the corner of Fort street in the west and ended at Phillips square.
Like previous years, the parade lasted around 3 hours. I had planned to take more pictures than I did – and it wasn’t due to having a Guinness drenched brunch – more the pity 😉
Here’s a selection of those that I did manage to take, before heading home to defrost – Guinness has many benefits 😉
These people were fortunate to be able to enjoy the parade from the warmth of their apartment.
Montreal’s Mayor, Denis Coderre, was looking the part in the viewing marquee.
These mannequin’s did not appear to be ammused by the parade…
I’ve been looking to buy a hat recently and like the one this guy is wearing, but not sure what the style name is (seems to be a cross between a Fedora and a Homburg)…anyone know?
At least with so much snow still around, there were some new vantage points to be found along the parade route.
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
