This weekend, the luck of the Irish will be out and about in parades all over the country. This year since the day falls on a Saturday, there is even more reason to celebrate. While local parades give you the small town, community feel and are wonderful chances for the kids to march with their schools, groups and teams, the big parade in NYC is a whole different experience.
The annual St. Patrick’s Day in Manhattan is a little like New Year’s Eve: everyone is cheerful, many are drunk, and there is a feeling in the air that this is a time you will remember. This rite of passage is a must for New Yorkers but even out-of-towners will revel in the festivities.
Here are 10 reasons why everyone should consider attending the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Manhattan at least once.
