St Patrick's Day with a Tropical Twist

Last Saturday we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a parade that over the years has become one of the most popular events among continentals here in St. Croix.

The parade starts at 11 a.m. sharp and it winds its way up about 4 blocks of Company Street before it turns the corner at Market Square and marches down the same distance on Kings Street. It is very small and quite short, but it makes up in size with a huge amount of good, goofy fun. The crowd is an eager participant wearing green, sometimes outrageous outfits, brandishing water guns and drinking massive amounts of beer. Here are some shots:
