A grand day in Gloucester City
The first-ever Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in Gloucester City, held March 6, had revelers seeing nothing but green as the Knights of Columbus, two Mummers’ string bands, the Gloucester City Irish Society and school groups marched on Monmouth Street, beginning at King and Monmouth and ending at Johnson Boulevard. Bishop Dennis Sullivan served as Grand Marshal for the day’s festivities. Below, the Durning String Band marches on; a jubilant child waves to the crowd along the parade route. Photos by James A.
