The annual St Paddy’s Day Parade was held last Saturday in Christiansted. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is known all over the islands as one of the biggest parties of the year. People even plan their vacation around this event!

This year the turnout was smaller than usual, but the crowd just as boisterous. About 25 entries created the parade from Hospital Street to the front of the old First Bank Building.

While the holiday is celebrated around the world on March 17, St. Croix marks the event the Saturday before. The event honors St. Patrick, the most commonly recognized patron saint of Ireland. Proceeds from the parade support the Boys and Girls Club of St. Croix.
