Flashback: Hoboken St. Patty’s 2005
Here’s a little bump to this interesting slide show from just seven years ago. Amazing how the parade has evolved from almost “quaint” to near massive flash-mob status, isn’t it?
Do you think the Hoboken St. Patty’s Parade has gotten worse?[box size=small color=blue type=quote align=right]I’ve seen this thing evolve from a really fun day to just madness…[/box]Some observations and photos about what the Hoboken St. Patrick’s Parade has been like over the years from Hoboken411 reader Mike.
“Loved all the fantastic coverage of the Hoboken St Pats parade. This year’s was actually my 7th one and I have to say, I’m glad it’s being moved to during the week and if it’s not, this was certainly the last one for me as I will make sure to get out of town if it’s on a Saturday again…
In my 7 years I feel like I’ve seen this thing evolve from a really fun day to just madness. I told some younger folks this (I’m 30) and they tell me oh it’s just b’c you’re getting older….. I found these pics from St. Pat’s 2005 (my first year in town) and you can tell from the pics that it was DEF a fun party day but NO WHERE near the out of control trainwreck we’ve seen get worse and worse since I would have to say about 2007 – Would you agree???”
