The world’s shortest St. Paddy’s Day Parade saw a crowd of people march, with horns and other noisemakers blaring, from Memorial Park to Snappas in Marsh Harbour lead by none other than the Barefoot Man.
The second St. Patrick Day’s Parade on Green Turtle Cay was a smashing success. Inspired by last year’s event, the organizers went out of their way to rally people to participate. They even invited world personalities such as the Prime Minister of Ireland (who sent acknowledgment but sadly could not attend) and President Obama.
The Strawberry Monkey’s Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade welcomes all “Irish For the Day” boaters and Abaconians. Barefoot Man will be this year’s Grand Marshall.
A large group of persons with Irish roots, or at least a love for the Irish, gathered together at Memorial Park for the world’s shortest – approximately a quarter mile – St. Paddy’s Day Parade on March 17.
The Christmas spirit came early on Green Turtle Cay this year with a Thanksgiving dinner catered by McIntosh Restaurant. The dinner was a fundraiser for the events scheduled for the month of December. Other end-of-the-year events included the golf-cart parade, a boat parade, a performance by Greg Russell, a torch parade and a Junkanoo rush.
