of annual event
More than 100,000 Floridians and snowbirds gathered March 17 along Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach to celebrate the city’s 50th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The current parade organizer has announced that he intends to retire from coordinating the event, but the city pledges to keep the event alive next year.
