Earlier in the morning there is a children's and pet parade with the locals, which is quaint and family friendly. The later real parade should be classified as "adults only" as drinks flow freely from persons watching the parade as well as those marching in it. It is too wild & often gets out of control.(Before then I never knew how many "American Irish" were on the island). During the "adult" parade, it's a good time to beat the crowds & cut down the sidestreets to the shops and grab an authentic corn beef and cabbage lunch at Shennanigan's. Clean flavors and delicious! Then get out of town to a quietier place by the time the parade is over and the party continues along the boardwalk. There are several children's events at Easter, check with the tourist calendar on gotostcroix.com.
