A beautiful Sunday saw thousands of people take to the sidewalks of Montauk Highway and Blue Point Avenue for the 26th annual Bayport-Blue Point St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

This is the oldest parade in Greater Patchogue, as well as the longest — with a parade route stretching over 1.5 miles.

This year’s grand marshal was Bob Draffin of the Bayport Civic Association.

Below are 20 photos from the big event.
