New York St. Patrick's Day Parade

17 Thu Mar 2016

New York St. Patrick's Day Parade

Since 1762, Americans have celebrated their Irish heritage in the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in NYC. Originally a purely Catholic holiday, St. Patrick's Day has come to stand as the premier Irish holiday: rivers, mustaches, and dreadlocks are dyed green and copious amounts of alcohol are consumed. In NYC, over two million people gather to watch and participate in the parade, which marches from 44th Street and Fifth Avenue to 86th Street, 1.5 miles away.

The Parade starts at 11am at 44th Street, marching up Fifth Avenue—past St. Patrick's Cathedral at 50th Street—all the way to 79th Street. It finishes around 4:30-5:00pm at the American Irish Historical Society at East 80th Street.
