On Saturday March 9th everything in Cutchogue became a little greener once again as the Cutchogue Community celebrated St. Patrick's Day.
The North Fork Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Cutchogue Fire Department held its Annual Cutchogue St. Patrick's Day Parade. The parade began at 2:00 p.m., marching down Route 25 through the heart of Cutchogue Village.
The annual parade which is now 15 years old, continues to grow each year. This year was no exception as the parade was well attended and had crowds of people lining the mile long parade route.
After experiencing weeks of marginal weather, Parade-goers were blessed with near perfect weather with sunny skies and temperatures reaching 40+ degrees.
This year's participants included the local Volunteer Fire Departments from the North Fork, numerous civic groups, scouting groups, youth groups, and of course Bag Pipe bands.
Following the parade, a reception was held at the Firehouse for all the participants, their families and the community. Hot dogs and refreshments were served by the members of the Cutchogue Fire Department and the CFD Ladies Auxiliary.
Each year the parade committee chooses a deserving community member to serve as the Grand Marshal for the parade.
The Co-Grand Marshals for this years parade were Chamber member Linda Carlson and CFD Ex-Chief Jim Fogarty Sr.
Thank You to everyone who helped to make this year's parade a success, including the 2019 parade committee, the Southold Town Police Department and Fire Police Squads from our neighboring Fire Departments who assisted with traffic control and detours throughout the parade.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY FROM C.F.D.
