Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in NYC with the world's largest parade
It’s time to grab your green hat and pint glass because St. Patrick’s Day is here. For New Yorkers of Irish descent, this means donning green attire and heading to New York City for one of the world's biggest parades, celebrating the holiday. While each borough has its own St. Patrick’s Day parade in the lead-up to the big day, the main event takes place in Manhattan, drawing about 2 million spectators annually to watch roughly 150,000 participants march. Sponsored every year by the St. Patrick’s Day Foundation NYC, a local nonprofit organisation founded to celebrate Irish American history, the parade is a celebration of Irish-American roots.
