Alumni and Friends Go Green at St. Patrick's Day Parade
A little snow couldn’t dampen the mood at New York’s 252nd St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and the St. John’s University community enjoyed the festivities front and center.
Wearing red “St. John’s” sashes, alumni, friends, students, faculty and staff marched up Fifth Avenue before an estimated crowd of two million people.
To kick off the day, guests gathered at St. Andrew’s Restaurant and Bar to celebrate Irish culture and enjoy brunch with friends and family. Later, as they marched, alumni and friends carried banners and wore green St. John’s apparel, showing off their University pride while getting into the spirit of this fun tradition.
