Yearly, New York City holds the largest gathering of any Irish St. Patrick’s Day parade celebration than anywhere else in the world. On March 16, 2013, many turned up for the parade on glitzy fashionable 5th avenue in New York City despite the rain and snow that dampened the day. New Yorkers, never one to be stopped from celebrating anything for that matter proceeded as usual. Many revelers turned up fashionable while some chose green theme costume to honor the day. Nevertheless, the event was a success and we even managed to spot some of our favorite in the crowd.
Meanwhile in the UK, Kate Middleton was appropriately dressed in a green coat in observant of the day and also managed to handle the almost devastating “wardrobe malfunction” with her shoe! One of the heel got stuck in the drain. Overall, she looked terrific for the occasion. Erin go bragh to all of our Irish members worldwide!
