While some people strive for significance by doling something bigger, or longer, or more frantically than anyone else, St. John doe snot do that.
In fact, there is pride in the island's annual St. Patrick's Day Parade being the world's smallest Paddy promenade. This year, while there were a few hundred locals and visitors watching marchers course through Cruz Bay, it still lasted only about 15 minutes.
Once again, the Quiet Mon Pub organized the event. The march included by a contingent of dogs from the Animal Care Center wearing green t-shirts and hats – to encourage people to donate by stuffing greenbacks in the pocket of one critter's coat.
A photo from the parade was published on the Islandia Real Estate blog. One of the Islandia sales people, Jane Kelly (Irish, right?) said the shortness of the parade is a good thing. "That gives you more time to enjoy corned beef and cabbage and all the festivities the island has to offer."
