St. Patrick’s Day in Metro Boston
St. Patrick’s Day takes on special meaning in Boston, a city known for its large Irish population, with parades, festivals, and traditional music. Head to the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston on the Sunday closest to the holiday for floats and pipe and drum bands. If you’re looking for more active entertainment, get ready to tap your feet to the Dropkick Murphys as they perform their annual St. Patrick’s Day concert at the House of Blues. We dare you not to sing along to Shipping up to Boston.
