The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the hamlet of Halcottsville may be the only one of its kind. Now in its 19th year, it is also an institution, a combination of whimsy and fun.
“This is a unique parade, because you can see it a second time,” said Pat Tucker of Halcottsville. It’s true. It may be the only parade in the world, where marchers in green and more than a dozen fire vehicles, head down Main Street, only to double back.
The parade was the brainchild of Dave Riordan of Halcottsville, who continues to serve as its organizer.
