St. Patrick's Day Parade

Whether you hail from the Emerald Isle is of no consequence - on St. Patrick's Day, Everyone can lay claim to being at least a little bit Irish. The parade itself lays claim to being the oldest (it was first held in 1762) and largest of its kind in the world. So clad yourself in kelly for the event and watch bagpipers, marching bands and assorted revelers from near and far as they march up Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 79th Street.
