MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Throngs of people gathered in downtown Mount Kisco on Saturday afternoon for the village's annual St. Patrick's Day parade, an occasion that featured an array of entertainment and local groups.

As numerous attendees decked in various types of green attire lined local sidewalks, the parade proceeded north on Route 117, turned west and ended after a finish down South Moger Avenue.

Several bagpipe groups performed in the procession, as did Irish-dancing schools. Members of the local Ancient Order of Hibernians chapter were featured; the group has been the sponsor of the parade for years.

The parade was also a kid-friendly affair, as scores of students from Mount Kisco Elementary School, West Patent Elementary School and St. Patrick's School from Bedford Village got to march. Groups of Cub Scouts and Girl Scout Brownies were also involved.

Several local civic groups, such as the Mount Kisco Lions, Mount Kisco Rotary and Mount Kisco Historical Society were on hand for the march, as were local and regional elected officials.

A group of Revolutionary War-era re-enactors brought a commotion when they repeatedly fired a cannon during several stops along the parade route.

Fire responders were well represented in the parade. The first contingent involved was a row of police officers on motorcycles who hailed from across Westchester County. Firefighters from Mount Kisco, Bedford Hills and Chappaqua also marched.

The parade also served as a chance to honor Fox Lane High School's boys' basketball team, which won a section title and made a run deep into the playoffs. Team members were transported through the parade on top of a fire truck, with one player holding up the section-title trophy.

Video and photos of the parade are attached.
