St. Patrick's Day Parade in New York City

Nearly 150,000 people march in the annual parade

Every year on March 17th, everything between 44th Street to 86th Street on Fifth Avenue in New York City goes green!  Book a hotel in New York City in advance and be part of the world’s largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade.   Nearly 150,000 people march in the annual parade, which starts at 11:00 a.m., with millions watching along the parade route and watching on television.
Though the parade is definitely a big party, it also has its somber moments. A few years back, the parade was dedicated to the “Heroes of 9/11” including fire, police, and rescue workers.  Each year around noon, the parade pauses for 60 seconds so the officiating clergy can lead participants in prayer. This is a reminder that St. Patrick’s Day is a religious holiday in Ireland.  This St. Patrick’s Day Parade has a long history; colonial New York City hosted the first official parade in 1762.
Following the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, New Yorkers dressed in green from head to toe descend on the city’s pubs to drink their fill of green beer and eat corned beef.  Taking public transportation and booking a New York hotel close to the action is wise.
