Description

As traditional as black pudding and leprechauns, the 5th Avenue St Patrick's Day Parade is revered the world over as one of the world's best. The parade marched for the first time way back in 1762 as a celebration of Irish faith and heritage, and those principles continue today, with a strong anti-commercialism sentiment retaining the true spirit of the march. No floats, no cars and no advertising mean that the St Patrick's Day Parade stays true to its roots, though you can be sure that the lack of commercialism only adds to the festive atmosphere. So grab your green outfit, knock back a Guinness or three and make your way to 5th Avenue from 44th to 86th Street to join thousands of your closest friends at New York's favourite annual parade.
