Music and dance and robust Irish pride permeated the heart of downtown Stamford on Saturday as organizations from Connecticut and beyond took part in the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Scores of groups marched and performed.

Pictured are the New York Metro Pipe Band; Kathleen Mulkerin School of Irish Dancing; Dixie Dandies of Yorktown Heights, N.Y.; Connecticut Valley Field Music; Pyramid Motor Patrol; Colchester Continental Fife & Drum; Stamford Youth Hockey Association; and Lynn Academy of Irish Dance. After the parade, revelers retreated to Old Town Hall, where the celebration continued with a reception and entertainment.
