Spring is on the horizon, and you know what that means: St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us. This popular holiday brings with it many symbols, traditions, and celebrations that make it one of the most anticipated days of the year.
Most immediately think of the shamrock, which has become the symbol for St. Patrick’s Day over time. Long ago, the shamrock was considered to be a sacred plant in Ireland, symbolizing the rebirth of spring. Today, it’s a sure sign of Irish heritage and pride.
Another sure sign of St. Patrick’s Day is the emergence of Celtic music, wherever you go. From classic, older tunes to music from modern artists, you are sure to hear the fiddle, the tin whistle, and the uilleann pipes – not to be confused with bagpipes.
Of course, here in Cape Cod, the onset of St. Patrick’s Day brings with it one of the top town spectacles of the year: the Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
The parade will start in West Yarmouth – about 15 minutes away from our dealership – and will end nearby us here at Dick Beard Chevrolet. For more information on the specific path of the parade, which is about two miles long, you can check out the Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Day Parade website, here.
And once the parade is over, consider visiting us to explore the enormous selection of vehicles we have at Dick Beard Chevrolet!
