Delray Beach, United States - March 17, 2013: A band, dressed in green jackets, march at the St. Patrick's Day parade. Onlookers watch from the sidewalk. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is an annual event in Delray Beach that began in 1968 when an Irish local pub owner took a walk down Delray's main street with his Shillelagh and a green pig and declared it “my own parade.” Now Uniformed Emergency Service workers as well as commercial, civic, charitable, educational, and social groups participate. Groups throughout the United States and several foreign countries take part. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. A good time is always had by adults and children alike at Delray’s parade in tribute to St. Patrick.
