St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New Orleans
One of our blog members gave this great report and pictures. Thanks!
Tonight the Half-Fast Walking Club participated in the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade sponsored by the Downtown Irish Club of New Orleans. The parade began in the Bywater section of New Orleans then meandered through the streets of the French Quarter ending on Bourbon Street to a raucously fired up virtually impenetrable crowd rivaling throngs found during Mardi Gras. Pete has never participated in this parade. This year he surprised us. Pete met us on the 1200 block of Decatur Street in the Quarter, and he had his family. During all the commotion, Pete and his wife Beverly were gracious enough to pose for a picture.
