Westhampton Beach St. Patrick's Day Parade

Westhampton Beach, NY

March 9, 2024

We kicked off our 27th season with the traditional start at the WHB St. Patrick's Day parade on Long Island. While cold it wasn't nearly as brutal as back in 2017 (when it was in the 20s). However, the wind was a challenge and we came out of this sandblasted. The Confederates just about matched our strength due the combined forces of the 9th & 30th Virginias. Best of all, we managed to finish just before the forecasted rain arrived.

Assembling Manual of Arms blustery winds Hurry up and wait the 9th Virginia Aniella & Marilena Badamo a lot of ringers Miss Diane and Daniella Lots of traffic The Confederates kept WAY back Stopped Again first time leading Marching along Mill Road quite the trooper keeping manual cadence Captain Jim Blaine Our ladies Marching along Mill Road through the roundabout the Rebs fell into column About to turn Marching along Main Street Spectators fleeing MUSTER ROLL our just desserts!
