St. Patrick's Day Parade
Get ready to greet and meet the Irish on March 17th. Credited to be the largest Saint Patrick’s Day (or 'Paddy’s Day', to be endearing) parade in the world, New York City’s Paddy’s Day parade honors the death of one of the patron saints of Ireland, Saint Patrick, with booze, food, music, and good ole’ Irish fun! Be advised though, that midtown Manhattan can get a bit crazy and crowded, especially since bars offer a plentitude of drink specials which lures a 20- and 30-something crowd to the bars from noon until night. This parade has been around for over 200 years.
