The area will transform into an Irish village featuring local food vendors, craft stalls, and live musical performances. From the Sydney Harbour Bridge look across the water at the Sydney Opera House: It is lit Green for the holiday.

Chicago, Illinois: For more than 50 yrs, the Windy City has celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a truly unique tradition: by coloring the Chicago River with an environmentally-safe, bright Green dye. On the day before St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago, more than 400,000 spectators gather along the river at 9a to watch the body of water change hues. Then, even larger crowds gather for the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which features troops of Irish step dancers and bagpipers traveling up Columbus Drive through Grant Park starting at Noon.

New York City, New York: If you like parades, then Manhattan is the St. Paddy’s place for you. In addition to the Empire State Building turning Green for the occasion, the Big Apple goes big with the holiday’s largest parade in the world: a 6-hr affair attracting some 2-M attendees that features about 150,000 dancers, musicians, and more. This New York City tradition has been in place since Y 1762, making its run longer than the United States has been a country.

Boston, Massachusetts: Boston is regarded as one of the most Irish cities in the US, which becomes especially evident every year on 17th March. Check out the spirited St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston, which attracts up to 1-M spectators annually.

Buenos Aires, Argentina: Buenos Aires is home to 1 of the largest Irish populations in the world. The result is South America’s liveliest St. Patrick’s Day fiesta, which spans multiple blocks along the city’s wide, tree-lined Avenida de Mayo. Live music and folk dancing performances take center stage, along with more than 50 food and drink stalls, an annual parade, and a costume contest. May the best-dressed leprechaun and fairy win.

And there is London

London’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities are brilliant. At 12Noon on 17th March, the parade kicks off from Piccadilly Circus, right in the heart of the city. After passing some of London’s most iconic landmarks, the party continues at Trafalgar Square, where an hrs-long entertainment festival hosts live performances by well-known musical acts. Of course, more rambunctious revelers will enjoy special events at various Irish pubs surrounding the Square. The London Eye turns into eye candy as well, illuminated with a shamrock hue.

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

Ireland Forever!
