Faces of St Patrick in Belfast, 2010

On St Patrick’s Day this week, I managed to see the St Patricks Day Parade/Festival in Belfast.

The city has made great attempts to make this an inclusive family day of celebration for all.

Here are just a few of the carnival participants.  (There were lots of kids involved in the parade, but I won’t be sharing those on the blog).

Firstly a few St Patricks

The Deputy Lord Mayor

A few colourful characters (not sure of their relevance to St Patrick, but there had amazing costumers)

The local media were there in force

A Canadian pipe band led the parade

And a few more characters

More photos of Belfast on St Patrick’s coming soon – watch this space!
