Manchester's St. Patrick's Parade a march of the Irish
"We were thrilled that the rain held off from about 10:45 until 2:30," St. Patrick's Parade spokesman Stephanie McLaughlin said.
Military and police units received enthusiastic applause from the spectators. Firefighters were accorded respectful applause, an acknowledgement of the deaths of two Boston firefighters working to contain a ferocious fire last week.
Several parents and friends of Hillside School students wore purple T-shirts identifying them as members of "Maggie's Bunch." The group was formed after the death of Margaret Elizabeth "Maggie" Philbrook, a 13-year-old Hillside 8th-grader who died of cancer in February.
The Barley Hall Wolves showed off their talents, demonstrating an Irish sport in which the game goes on, good weather or wet.
