St Patrick’s Day celebration in Parada Típica El Choco
Last Monday, March 17 the Canadian and Irish people celebrated their national holiday in Sosúa in restaurant Parada Típica El Choco. St. Patrick ‘s Day (Irish Gaelic: Lá Fhéile Pádraig) is the national holiday of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Montserrat, and the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador. The 17th of March is the day to commemorate St. Patrick, the patron saint of the country. All over Ireland and parts of Canada, this is celebrated with outdoor concerts, carnival, parades and fireworks. Green is the color that is associated with the festival. Partygoers usually wear green clothes so also at Parada Típica El Choco almost everybody was dressed in green. Marco and Jacqueline had a band performing for the celebration with appropriate music like blues, Pop and Rock and Roll.
The band ’24 hour power’ resides in Puerto Plata and consists of two guitarists (also harmonica player), a saxophonist and a drummer and performed really good to the delight of the many visitors. It is a very good band. The audience, almost all dressed in green, had a great party, and there was plenty of dancing, singing and drinking . St Patrick’s Day revelers know how to party!
