Gregg-Jones-StPatricks-Day-2013-192What the St. John St. Patrick's Day Parade lacks in distance, it makes up for in spirit.  At just under 100 yards, the parade claims to be the shortest in the world, starting at the Fire Station and ending at the infamous Quiet Mon pub in Cruz Bay, St. John. 

Hundreds participate in the celebration, donning festive green and glittery attire to celebrate a day of drinking "like a good Irishman".

Local photographer Gregg Jones captured the spirit of the parade from a few years ago, reflecting the quirky nature of this fun-loving island.

The 2017 parade is scheduled for Saturday, March 18th at 12pm.  Bring on your green and celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Love City style!
