St. Patrick's Day Parade ~ 2022

After two long covid years,
a large crowd lined the
 streets in Richmond, Quebec,
in the Eastern Townships,
south of Montreal, for
 their St. Patricks Parade.

Richmond has long been 
renowned across the province
 for its annual celebrations of 
 Irish heritage and culture.

Despite rain in the forecast, 
it held off for the parade,
"the luck of the Irish"

Lots of horses, and horse teams.

 Farm Tractors 

and Lawn Tractors.
This tractor put on a show.
with smoke and flames.

Irish Wolfhound dogs

A large gentle dog.

Police on horseback,  were on guard also, 

All terrain vehicles

Many decorated floats from 
 community organizations
 and businesses.

I didn't take a lot of photos.
There were a lot of many 
other things to see,
like Scottish Pipers
and Pipe Bands.
To view some short videos
of 3 pipe bands, visit
me on Instagram

My photos were taken on a
 quite street, Craig St., near 
 the starting of the parade.

The next photo, (not my photo),
was taken on Main Street where
 most of the crowd gathered.

It felt great to have some
 normalcy in our lives again.
Lets hope that the virus count stays
low, as most of the restrictions
are being lifted.
