Bellingham kicked off its Saint Patrick's Day celebrations a little early this year with its first annual Saint Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 13th. Starting at noon, the streets were lined with cheering crowds as the parade worked its way up Cornwall Avenue and on through downtown Bellingham. Helping to spread awareness of the Whatcom Marine Mammal Stranding Network within our community, stranding response team members Trisha, Rose and Julie carried the banner for the Whatcom Marine Mammal Stranding Network along the parade route.

Followed by the Bellingham Roller Betties, we certainly heard lots of applause and cheers. Everyone loves a parade!
