Parade Participants

Some of the participants in the 2019 Naples St. Patrick's Day Parade.

A team of Clydesdale horses pulled a replica Budweiser beer carriage.

Fire, police and state troopers -- active and retired -- had prominent positions in the parade.
City of New York firefighters accompanied a float with 343 flags, symbolizing the 
343 NYFD firefighters who died in the September 11 attacks.

It must have been a long march for the younger participants, but some held up pretty well.

Some didn't.

The Clydesdales stand out well.

They yellow blooms are on tabebuia or golden trumpet trees. They flower for only two weeks, typically at the end of March.
