Close to two million spectators attended the parade, it is held on March 17 from 11 am until 4 pm.
The parade is heading it by the Third Infantry Regiment in the U.S., followed by musical bands, pipers and academic groups within the American Union and Irish groups.
The celebration starts with a group of nostalgic military and Irish immigrants who were part of the British army in the North American colonial territory.
The event represents an opportunity to speak Gaelic, interpret the songs that are typical of the bagpipes and wear green, a symbol of national pride formerly banned in Ireland that represents the idea of independence.
