I'm not Irish, but Kiss me Anyway! The Parks head to the wildest St. Patrick's Day Parades in the city!!!

St. Patrick's Day, The day of The Festival of Patrick is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on the 17th of March. It commemorates St. Patrick, the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.
It is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church and Lutheran Church. Saint Patrick's Day was made an official feast day in the early seventeenth century, and has gradually become a celebration of Irish culture in general.
The day is generally characterised by the attendance of church services,wearing of green attire and the lifting of Lenten restrictions on eating, and drinking alcohol.
Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Newfoundland and Labrador and in Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora, especially in places such as Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, among others. Today, St. Patrick's Day is probably the most widely celebrated saint's day in the world
