Bay Ridge St. Patrick’s Day Parade (3/22/2015)

Logo - St Patricks Day

Before I start I would like to welcome you to the fourth day of the continuing winter. Yeah they said that Spring had sprung on Friday but its been super cold ever since so I am kind of convinced winter has made a side deal with Mother Nature. Now, where was I – Oh yea….. You probably didn’t realize that St. Patrick’s Day was a week long celebration if you’re not from the immediate NYC area. With parades happening before 3/17 and additional ones after that date it would surely seem to be the case. That brings us to this presentation which is a visual of the Bay Ridge St. Patrick’s Day Parade that happened yesterday in our neighborhood. I like presenting this for our faraway readers as much as those former Ridge residents who now live in other parts of the country. Here we go.

Bay Ridge Memorial Day Parade (5/27/2013)

Today was the annual Bay Ridge Memorial Day Parade, and this 146th edition of the parade has been going on in Bay Ridge for the past 21 years. The motto for this year would be “Lest We Forget” and its important that we never let this be the case to all our brave men and women who fought so hard and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. The parade would start on 87th Street and 3rd Avenue (my parents old block actually) and travel up to Marine Avenue heading to Fourth Avenue where it will end at Cannonball Park. It’s actually John Paul Jones Park but everyone calls it that.

The parade began with a little bit of Rolling Thunder. I snagged it on video using the ever trusty Panasonic Lumix. This time around it would be the only video that was captured as I figured I did not need to get the pipe and drum corps this time around like I did on St. Patrick’s Day.



I’ll toss some comments in now and then during the presentation but will mostly be letting you enjoy the parade as it passes by in order to let you feel like you are there watching it along with me. Enjoy.

Bay Ridge St. Patrick’s Day Parade (3/24/2013)

Hello my friends and welcome to Bay Ridge where earlier in the day we had our annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. This is the first parade of the year in our neighborhood and since it passes right by my block I always try to snag a bunch of images for you readers to enjoy. One of the main reasons that I do this is for those long ago residents who might have moved away from this neck of the woods so they get a little slice of the old neighborhood. Earlier this year my own family packed up and headed to South Carolina. Oh don’t worry, I’m still here in NYC and ready to entertain you again and again so let’s get started on these parade visuals. I’ll be letting the images do the talking and say very little until we’re done.
