All the girls appeared demure--lots of white dresses with red and green touches.
A float getting ready--most of them seemed to have commercial sponsorship.
Just two days after St. Patrick's Day, it was time for another parade--St. Joseph's Day--which is ostensibly an Italian-American celebration. Despite the name, it didn't appear to have too much to do with religion! The pictures of the floats are from the pre-parade afternoon. The garters on the men's arms are to put on girls legs later on in return for a kiss.
