Hartford’s 50th St. Patrick’s Day parade returned Saturday after several cancellations, and a large contingent from West Hartford joined in the festivities.
The parade was canceled in March 2020 as the impact of COVID-19 was just beginning its impact on the area, and was not held in 2021 amid the lingering pandemic. And, in 2022, the event was postponed for a week due to severe weather forecast on March 12, which was the original date.
Under cloudy and occasionally misty skies, former marshals and honorees from West Hartford, representatives from the West Hartford Police and West Hartford Fire departments, and a Friends of Feeney float were among the town’s participants in the parade.
The West Hartford Police Department created a video of their experience, which was shared on their Facebook page.
