The sun was shining and the streets were packed for the 69th Miller Place-Rocky Point St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The three-mile parade route, organized by Friends of St. Patrick, draws thousands of people to the North Shore each year.

The marchers stepped off at 1 p.m. at 25A and Harrison Avenue in Miller Place.
