2014 Hartford St. Patrick’s Day Parade

An estimated crowd of more than 40,000 people turned out for the annual Hartford St. Patrick’s Day parade under a bright sun that made Saturday probably the best weather day of 2014. Mandated by tradition, members of the Eyewitness News team came out to take part in the parade, and unfortunately a few of our colleagues were on vacation or out of town and couldn’t make it.

The following pictures were taken by a group of fine shutterbugs including Irene O’Connor, Hartford News photographer Andy Hart, and Denise D’Ascenzo’s daughter, Kathryn. Kara Sundlun and I brought the kids along too, and as you’ll see below, my son Julian took a quick nap during the festivities.

We had a great time seeing so many familiar and friendly faces along the parade route and we look forward to next year.

  1. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your
    blog and in depth information you provide. It’s good to come across
    a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Excellent
    read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  2. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s
    the blog. Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
