Thousands fill Bayonne streets to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

The city of Bayonne picked the Sunday following St. Patrick’s Day to hold their annual parade. Although the temperatures were chilly, and there was a warning of snow, the turnout was nothing short of impressive.

Bayonne has a large Irish population, and the city takes this event very seriously. This year’s celebration was lead by Grand Marshal Michael Boyle, a lifetime Bayonne resident.

The parade had a substantial amount of participants, including elected officials, police, scouts, unions, and schools.

“Every year I look forward to this,” said Bayonne resident Jeffery Spencer, and he did not seem to be alone. Several people mentioned they attended the parade annually, and it was always a great affair.
