Wet weather didn’t dampen the spirits of everyone that came out for the 2019 Greater New Haven Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.

Dozens of groups, bands, and attractions made the trek along the parade route for those who didn’t let the damp weather slow down their party.

It all began with the dignitaries from the New Haven Saint Patrick’s Day Parade Committee, getting the festivities off to a great start.

New Haven’s firefighters and Emerald Society got everyone in the spirit classic sights and sounds.

Political dignitaries didn’t let the weather slow them down.

The parade also featured lots of colorful characters, including the New England Brewing Company’s enthusiastic dancing unicorn. Only in New Haven…

The Connecticut Renaissance Faire came out in full force with amazing talent, inlcuding fire eaters that got the crowd pumped up.

West Haven native Taylor Basiglia was the 2019 Parade Queen, and greeting parade goers all afternoon.

The crew from the Haunted Isle gave the parade a unique twist. The costumes were scary, but fun!
