Garden City/Mineola St. Patrick’s Day Parade Celebrates Irish Culture

 

Members of the Irish-Americans in Government (IAIG) recently celebrated their Irish-American heritage as marchers in the Irish American Society of Nassau, Suffolk and Queens St. Patrick’s Parade through the streets of Garden City and Mineola. 

National Heritage Fellow and acclaimed Irish step dancer Donny Golden was Grand Marshal of this year’s parade.  The crowd cheered as members of the IAIG, Irish American Society and other organizations marched.  Bagpipers played and talented students from the Donald Golden School of Irish Dance performed lively step dance routines.
