St. Patrick’s Day Parade
March 17, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Some would argue that Boston does St. Patrick’s Day even better than Dublin, with its massive parade that attracts as many as one million green-clad visitors. A number of musical performances, including bagpipes and brass bands, take to West Broadway at 1:00 p.m. Revelers will also enjoy floats and plenty of shamrocks. The festivities aren’t just limited to the parade in Southie. Travelers can also enjoy the annual Dropkick Murphys (a Boston-born Celtic punk rock band) concert at the House of Blues and an exceptional amount of green beer. For a bit of history, tourists are encouraged to explore Boston’s Irish Heritage Trail, which meanders across the city from the Rose Kennedy Garden to Fenway Park.
