Bedecked in silly hats and shamrocks, hundreds of residents of the Greater Red Bank Green lined the route of the fourth annual St. Patrick’s Parade in Rumson Sunday. We’ve got dozens of photos, below. (Photos by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
It’s a day of wearin’ of the green, donnin’ of the caudeen, and greenin’ of the hair when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around on the Greater Red Bank Green. The 2015 edition was accompanied by the usual revelry beginning Tuesday afternoon, as seen here in photos from the Dublin House Pub, Walt Street Pub, Molly Maguire’s Gastropub and Murphy’s Tavern.

For their third annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Rumsonians put on a display of kelly green and Hibernian spirit Sunday. A plethora of men in kilts, and a few kilted women, were joined by the young and old marchers and spectators – including a two-week-old – as well as horses, dogs and festive floats on a day of good cheer.

A quick rundown of things to do this weekend…
October is the time for womens awareness issues; breast cancer and domestic violence share the month. At 180 Turning Lives Around, volunteers hope to give purple its due in the midst of so much pink.
Purple is the color that signifies the bruises and shame that come from abuse inflicted by someone that you love and trust, said Barbara Lovell-Napoli, assistant director of development at 180. Monmouth County has the second-highest incidence of domestic violence in New Jersey, Lovell-Napoli said, and the most effective tool for prevention is awareness.
Each year, former clients put on a gallery show based on 180’s art therapy program. For 2012, its called Heads Up! and opens tonight at U Gallery. On display through October 24 a will be artwork from survivors and artists who support 180s mission.
