The East End Emerald Society held its fourth annual Jamesport St. Patrick’s Day parade this afternoon, drawing crowds all along the Main Road route.

Pipe bands, community groups and local fire departments were just some of the hundreds of marchers, all led by Grand Marshal, Councilman James Wooten of Riverhead.
