ANNAPOLIS — After two years of pandemic postponements.. The weather couldn't have been better for today's saint Patrick's day parade in Annapolis.

Thousands were curbside from west street down to main street... And the smiles went for miles.

But one of the most touching moments came when Baltimore city firefighter john McMaster was honored as the First Responder of the Year.

He survived in January's vacant house fire on South Stricker Street that killed three of his fellow firefighters. McMaster spent several days in shock trauma after that fire before he was released so he could attend their funeral.

"What does this outpouring mean to you?"

"I don't have words. Everybody's been so great to me, I can't even speak."

Baltimore's St Patrick's parade will be next Sunday.
