Montrealers celebrate Saint Patrick's Day with parade

Montrealers celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with parade: Montrealers braved the grey weather on Sunday to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with the city’s 199th annual parade. The parade featured close to 100 groups and more than 2,500 participants, including marching bands, floats, and dancers.

The parade began at the intersection of Rue du Fort and Boulevard de Maisonneuve and culminated at Place des Festivals.

For many, the parade is a way to celebrate their Irish heritage.

“My ancestors are from Ireland, so that’s why we decided to participate in the parade,” said Phil Hayden.

But the parade is also a chance for people of all backgrounds to come together and enjoy a festive atmosphere.

“It’s a gathering open to everyone, regardless of their religion, color, social or political beliefs,” said François Terrault.
