Andrew Cuomo and Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., walk along Fifth Avenue during the St. Patrick's Day parade Saturday, March 17, 2018, in NY.

The air was crisp but the sun was shining as hundreds flocked to downtown Newton to celebrate Irish heritage and Irish-American culture.

Meanwhile revellers in Trafalgar Square enjoyed performances from the likes of Irish poet Stephen James Smith and singer-songwriter Orla Gartland.

Many people said their favorite parts of the parade were the floats, music, and candy. "It's a good atmosphere", said Mike Beyer, who attended the parade with a group of friends. For others though, this year marked the first time they were watching the small canal town's parade. Several bagpipe bands led a parade made up of more than 100 marching bands after Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo spoke briefly, calling it a "day of inclusion" and adding: "We're all immigrants". "We've been doing this for 22 years", said Charlie Kay, a member of the St. Patrick's Day Parade Committee. "We were thinking about what group we could become so we could march in it next year".

Malcolm Butler still has "love" for Bill Belichick
The cornerback was well-respected in the Patriots' locker room and played last season under a $3.9 million tender offer. But I can say he won more than he lost, so it is what is. "They loved me at times when they shouldn't love me".

Kate Middleton, Prince William and Star Wars actor Mark Hamill join the world in celebrating the patron saint of Ireland today on St Patrick's Day.

A Spider-Man actor pretends to shoot webs at the bystanders during the St. Patrick's Day parade on March 17, 2018. Cuomo said, "I'm going to say a prayer for them and their families as we go past St".

But perhaps the biggest Irish spirit belonged to Paul Alonyisus McCormick of Chesapeake City, who was decked out in a leprechaun costume.
