The Festival celebrates families, many of whom walk in the annual parade under family banners. Looking at these pictures, I am reminded somewhat of the Rider games.
And spending time with some real leprechauns: here some friends for many years, members of the Carrol family. The children here are about the age of their parents when I first met them during my time at St. Bartholomew's Church, Melrose and St. Clement's, Port Elgin, in the 1970's (to the back)when their parents were altar servers and members of the childrens choir. Friends are always a great blessing.
