Behind the Scenes and the Big Event
A Photo Journal of the Most Enchanting Parade in the World
This is the best day of my life, I have never been so happy before!”
These were the words that I heard from Spain’s Vero4Travel, international press correspondent, Jesús Martínez, as we stood there snapping photos of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin. Standing there we had no idea what to expect from the home of one of the world’s most celebrated holidays. As it unraveled before our eyes, it had become apparent that this was the most interesting, cultural, and artistic parade we had ever seen. With this year kicking off a three-year theme of Past, Present and Future, the 2014 St. Patrick’s Festival Parade was teeming with Irish history, legends, and folklore.
