BOSTON (WHDH) - The cold and windy weather didn’t stop a huge crowd of thousands of area residents from descending on South Boston for the first St. Patrick’s Day Parade since the pandemic to complete its full traditional route.

Mayor Michelle Wu and Gov. Maura Healey were among the local leaders taking part in the parade, which drew revelers decked out in green to line the route from West Broadway to Dorchester Street.

Congressman Stephen Lynch was also on hand as the confetti was flying around the parade route.
