It was 29 years ago today

My high school band marched in the St. Patrick's Day parade in New York. I didn't play an instrument, but marched with the color guard carrying flags in front of the band. Toward the end of the parade, we were joined by an obviously drunk man who was overjoyed to see our Maryland flag. He marched with us for about a half a block.
Wonder if Yankee Philip was at that parade?

I marched in many many St.Patrick's Day parades in NYC. Atleast 14 that I can remember. 1980 I marched with the Galwaymen's Association. 1978 & 1979 I marched with Xavier High School. I worked the parade as a police officer too. Thanks for link

I figured you had quite a few parades under your belt.
