Green Shamrocks, Pots of Gold, Leprechaun’s… It’s Saint Patrick’s Day!
Bostonians are famous for a lot of things; our passion for the Red Sox, our accents, great clam chowdah… and our Saint Patrick’s Day celebrations!
Attending South Boston’s elaborate Saint Patrick’s Day parade is a rite of passage for all New Englanders. Touted as the second largest parade in the country, 600,000 to 1 million people attend every year – that’s a lot of green!
Held this Sunday, March 20, the parade begins at 1 PM at the Broadway Station in South Boston, ending at Farragut Road, South Boston. Choose your spot early along the three-mile route so you don’t miss seeing fan favorites like Mayor Marty Walsh or those famous bagpipes!
Be sure to check out some great local pubs in South Boston while you’re in town, and indulge in a basket of fish and chips and a pint or two.
Of course, if parading is not your thing, you can celebrate at home with this delicious recipe for a traditional Saint Patrick’s Day feast of Corned Beef and Cabbage.
