St. Patrick’s Day on Cape Cod

March 3, 2014

March is known as the start of spring, the beginning of wild weather that comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb, and of course, that one day where we all wear green. We all love that one day where, no matter what our heritage, we get to be Irish for a day.

On Cape Cod, where many of us can trace our roots back to Ireland, we are no different when it comes to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.  The Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Day Parade is this Saturday, March 8, 2014.  This parade starts in South Yarmouth and ends in West Yarmouth.  While it may not be as legendary as the parade in South Boston or in Chicago, it does draw its own level of celebrity with this year’s Grand Marshal, Charlie Moore of NESN and NBC Sports.

With floats, bands, and all things Irish, this is a great way to come out and see what people consider to be the best things about being Irish!
