Despite the cold, a great day at the New Haven St. Patrick’s Day Parade

NEW HAVEN --  The state's largest single day spectator event faced a chilly challenge. Despite the severe cold weather, the Greater New Haven St. Patrick's Day Parade stepped off on Sunday, at the corner of Sherman Ave. and Chapel St.

About 200 officers monitored the crowd and the bars and restaurants along the 1.8 mile parade route were packed! For the second consecutive year the New Haven Green featured a family fun zone.

Don't forget to email your parade pictures to pictures@fox61.com, or send them to us on Facebook, Instagram or through the FOX61 app. See our slideshow here.
