Thousands lined the streets just like the old days as the Trenton St. Patrick's Day parade was presented under the most spring like conditions ever. Usually, the day is brisk and sometimes windy, but yesterday was ideal. I took these 3 photos before my battery decided to die (I thought I had just re-charged it, but never considered that it was a month ago.) Above is a photo of the gathering crowd as they assembled. This photo was taken at 12:10 and the parade was set to kick off at 12:30. A delay occurred when the officers were late arriving from Mass at Immaculate Conception Church in Chambersburg. I took a few quiet moments to speak with the Lord, recalling the many happy years I spent as a parishioner at that magnificent building on South Olden Avenue. The lower photo is an amazingly accurate depiction of St. Patrick, as portrayed by Dennis Keenan's son, Tim; a true semblance of the revered Saint.
