St. Patrick's Day Irish Channel Parade Set for Saturday
Once a year, New Orleans’ Irish Channel lives up to its name as the spot to party for St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day Parade falls on the Saturday before March 17. Hundreds of men will don suits and distribute flowers to crowds, oftentimes for the price of a peck on the cheek. If the float riders are generous with throws, those on the route could collect a whole meal's worth of catches.
