St.Patrick's Day with Nick the Boxer

This is Nick the Boxer all dressed up for the annual Huntington St. Patrick's Day Parade.   The little red sock is protecting stiches he received during a small operation on one of his toes. 
 Nick is a rescue dog and has a very nice disposition, and loves people.
 The Huntington St. Patrick's Day parade is one of Long Island's oldest and largest  parades.

Of course many volunteer fire departments send their amazing trucks and brave men and women.
 Bag Pipers are the soul of this parade.
 Vintage muscle cars and motorcycles are included.
This vintage army truck belongs to the American Legion post 1244 of Greenlawn.
 The Kiwanis Club puts their antique cars on display.

Proud members of the Halesite Volunteer Fire Department.

Nick meets a drummer and member of a bag pipe group.
All in all, Nick was well behaved for the Huntington St. Patrick's Parade.

That looks like it was a lot of fun. I grew up going to what was called the Daffodil Parade. Haven't been to one in forever.
