Today’s 23rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade started marching down Main Street, in Downtown Ventura, at 10:00am. The parade featured marching bands, bagpipers, dancers, political dignitaries, hot rods, vintage cars, motorcycles, local societies, lots of green and quite a bit more.
This year’s theme was “Giving back … The REAL Pot of Gold.”
This year’s Grand Marshal was Ed Hogan: Chairman, CEO and President of the Hogan Family Foundation.
