Parade Planner: Downtown Irish Club St. Patrick's Day Parade


Following almost two weeks of Irish events, it’s easy to forget that there’s still one more day to celebrate. Today (3.17), is actually St. Patrick’s Day. There is one more procession left, the legendary Downtown Irish Club Parade.


Downtown Irish Club Parade Marks St. Patrick's Day


Happy St. Patrick's Day, New Orleans! The streets were filled with green over the weekend, but one Club ensures that there's still a reason to celebrate on St. Patrick's feast day, itself. The Downtown Irish Club is set to step off from Bywater's Bud Rip's at 6 p.m., and head for Bourbon St.


St. Patrick's Day Practice, 5K in Downtown New Orleans Sunday


Carnival parades may be over, but taking to the streets is always in season in the Crescent City. On Sunday, March 9, a pair of events will meander through the downtown streets for the Green and the Mission. The Downtown Irish Club is set for their annual practice march to gear up for St. Patrick's Day, and the Big Easy-Big Heart 5K will head from the French Quarter into the Marigny for their second year.


Today in New Orleans 3.17.13


If you haven’t used up all your energy catching cabbage, find another green outfit and hit the streets for St. Patrick’s Day. From Finn McCool’s to the Ninth Ward, New Orleanians are doing it big. Mardi Gras Indians are showing off their feathers and beads for Super Sunday in Central City. On this day in 1999, famous piano man Eddie Bo lost all of his possessions in a fire that destroyed his home. Now, time to plan out your St. Pat’s.


St. Patricks' Day Practice, Ninth Ward Second Line in New Orleans Sunday


For New Orleans, a week is enough rest after Mardi Gras. It's time to start rollin' again. A pair of parades is set to descend on downtown New Orleans this weekend. In the Bywater, the Downtown Irish Club is getting ready for their St. Patrick's Day saunter. In the 9th Ward, a Social Aide and Pleasure Club will cross the canal once again.


Third Street Seeing Green


The Irish Channel's Third St. might end up green tonight from all the colored beer likely to be spilled. At the corner of Magazine St., Tracey's - the bar owned by Parsol's old owners - is throwing a block party to celebrate St. Patty's. Deeper into the city's original Irish stronghold, at Third and Constance St., Parasol's, under new ownership, is keeping alive the original March 17 block party. Double the block parties means only one thing...doube the roast beef po-boys!
