It was easy being green on Saturday. Droves of revelers lined the sidewalks of Main Street in Westhampton Beach to view the village’s 51st St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Grand Marshal Peter Cuthbert kicked off the line of march under this year’s theme of “Hometown Heroes,” leading hundreds of participants, including local Veterans of Foreign War posts, fire departments, police, and ambulance companies. The parade featured pipe bands, classic cars, floats from local businesses, and a Westhampton Beach parade staple, the Coneheads.
