Saint Patrick’s Day was celebrated early on March 7 in Old Town with a day of family fun events, including a classic car show, a dog show and a Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. Federal, state, and local elected officials; the Irish Ambassador; military commanders; and other local celebrities participated, as well as local scouts, marines and high school bands. It is one of the country’s oldest parades (Photos by Rowan Cech)
