Shades of green filled the streets of Birmingham, Alabama's 5 Points South neighborhood on March 17th as the annual St. Patrick's Day parade was held. Patrons, young and old, came out on a lovely Saturday afternoon to watch the parade and its cast of characters pass along the route. This year's Grand Marshall was none other than Mayor Randall Woodfin. He was joined by the likes of pipe bands, beauty queens, fire and police vehicles, rollery derby participants, and all sorts of other individuals that wanted to celebrate the holiday.
This was my first time at the St. Patrick's Day parade in Birmingham in quite some time. At first, I thought the weather was not going to cooperate, but it turned the page and allowed for a pleasant experience. A parade is always a great place to do some cultural photography, and this particular St. Patrick's Day parade definitely did not disappoint.
I hope you enjoy the photos from this year's St. Patrick's Day parade in Birmingham, and if you see yourself in any, let me know!
