40 Years of St. Patrick's Day Parades

Four decades of Irish culture, local community and celebration continues Sunday

There's another reason to toast this weekend: the Belmar-Lake Como St. Patrick's Day Parade turns 40.

We put together a collection of videos from the Manasquan-Belmar Patch archives and from YouTube showing many a previous year in parades.

And while some things never change (lots of green, and pipes and drums) the parade has grown to include new groups and attract more visitors over its history.

Check out our video gallery and share your own photo or video memories from past parades.
