On march 18th 2018, the United Irish Societies of Montreal held the 195th annual Saint-Patrick's parade.
The Montreal Saint-Patrick's day parade is the oldest Saint Patrick's parade in Canada
and has been held since 1824 and nothing has ever stopped it from happening each year.People from all over Montreal and beyond came to celebrate the Irish. This year, there was a change of route for the parade due to construction being held downtown and it went from East to west along de Maisonneuve street. This year's edition featured 20 floats, 25 marching bands and more than 4,000 people participating in the show. Clan Logan was in the parade with the saint Andrew's Society of Montreal and the Black Watch pipes and Drums.It was a very cold day with a wind factor in the minus seventeen celcius(1.40 Farenheit).Clan Logan marched proudly in the extensive cold in order to represent the Logans with dignity and honour at this special event. Although a very cold day the turn out for this event was very good and Clan Logan received many cheers of support from the crowd. The new Mayoresse of Montreal, Valerie Plante participated in the parade. After the event, the fun continued in the various Irish pubs across Montreal. The Clan Logan Society of Canada wishes to thank the United Irish Societies of Montreal for such a great parade this year and would like to thank Peter Matulina, The Saint Andrew's Society photographer for the beautiful pictures.
