St. Patrick's Day Parade, Hermosa Beach

The parade kicks off at 11 a.m. from Arlington and Pier Avenues -- in front of the post office, across the street from the library.

This year (as it was last year) it's sponsored by the City of Hermosa Beach. What does this mean to me? you ask. The saddest words of tongue or pen -- NO food court! In an effort to boost local businesses, it's all HB restaurants. All of which will be jammed to the very rafters.

Another thing missing -- free bus service to and fro. When Mark Conte Productions ran it, we had all of the above plus bands, a beer garden and tons of vendors. Mark, lad, we miss ya's!
