Parade Planner: Downtown Irish Club & Jim Monaghan's Parade


With St. Joseph's Day and Super Sunday coming up this weekend, following a week filled with Irish events, it's easy to forget that today is the main day for celebrations. Today (3.17) is actually St. Patrick's Day. The skies are clear today, and two of the biggest parades of the holiday are set to roll around town distributing potatoes, beads, and brews. There will be a few gaelic get-downs at block parties around Uptown. Full details and routes follow. 


Today in NOLA 3.17.17


Feeling green? St. Patrick's Day festivities will be occurring all over town today, offering your weekend fill of beads and beers. Mainline Brass Band will be taking the Maple Leaf stage, while Loose Marbles is holding court at Dragon's Den. Gasa Gasa is hosting Mykki Blanco and Cakes da Killa in a can't-miss show, and Ocean Disco is bringing their one-of-a-kind sound to Bon Temps. As legend has it, the first ever "coffee break" was initiated by the managers of the Delta Steamship company who called some 80 employees to the Hibernia building on this day in New Orleans in 1930 to drink the caffeinated beverage and take a recess. Now, more to do this Friday.


Parade Planner: Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Parade


The skies are overcast today, but that will not stop the Irish Channel from celebrating their namesake St. Patrick's Day parade. So, get ready to catch yourself a stew and pull up those green leggings. Full route and details follow.

The first St. Patrick’s Day parade kicks off today in Uptown. Get your culture fix for free with the Ogden Museum’s day of architectural arts activities and the Sacred Music Festival in the Marigny. DJ Soul Sister spins her tunes at the Hi-Ho at her regular dance party, while NPR’s new fave band Tank and the Bangas do their thing on Frenchmen. On this day in 1803, Spanish Governor Salcedo and the Cabildo learned that Louisiana was to be transferred to the French. Now, read on for more this Saturday.
