March 17th, 2013 be sure to check out the Boston parade if you’re in the area.

The history behind Boston’s parade is fascinating.   Here’s an excerpt from their website. Please visit them and check out all the wonderful information they have available.  It wouldn’t hurt to give a contribution and support them either. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge

From their website:

“Ninth Regiment, M.V.M., Chief Marshall EvacuationIn Day Procession was the first Chief Marshall in 1901.

1901 was the very first celebration of Evacuation or St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It was on the 125th Anniversary, on the day General George Washington and the Continental Army forced the British to end the occupancy of Boston.”
