St. Patrick’s Day events: NYC parades, parties and more celebrations

Shamrocks and green-everything has taken hold, so it’s time to think about your St. Patrick’s Day plans.

It won’t be hard to find drink specials across the city, and there is no shortage of parades. Whether you’re looking for a pub crawl, a concert, a parade, a historical tour or a wee bit of silliness, the city has it.

And since the holiday falls on a Sunday (March 17), there’s more of a reason to get out and celebrate with a drink, authentic eats, great music and more.
