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.


Today in New Orleans: 3.15.14


Happy St. Paddy’s Day weekend! Once the parades roll through the Irish Channel and the French Quarter, local artists are taking over venues from Tipitina’s to St. Claude. Happy Birthday to Andrew Jackson, born on this day in 1767. Now, more to do this Saturday.

From the Ninth Ward to the Irish Channel, locals were decked out in festive digs, fighting for cabbage all weekend long. If you weren't able to make it to the parades or the block parties, don't be green with envy. Photographer Brandon Robert captured some of the best moments from Saturday's Irish Channel Parade.


Monaghan's St. Patrick's Day Parade Romps in the French Quarter (PHOTOS)


by Elaina Patton

Outside Molly’s at the Market, the night was beginning as pre-paraders slowly trickled in and around the bar, anticipating the 6pm roll time of Friday's annual Jim Monaghan St. Patrick's Day Parade. Tourists found each other among the throng, exchanging well-intentioned, and somewhat ill-in-taste, jokes and rounds of shots. Locals, a little more sobered at the beginning of the night, mostly moved in groups of festive neon green.

The marching clubs that make up the first section of the annual Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Parade let you get close to the action, but NoDef got a little closer. Thomas Schwank provides sights and sounds from the route of Saturday's Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Parade.


Edwin Edwards to Ride in French Quarter St. Patrick's Day Parade


Mark your calendars. Your next chance to see Louisiana's favorite governor-turned-convicted felon-turned-Facebook user in New Orleans will be on the eve of St. Patrick's Day. Edwin Edwards will prove once again that he can still reign over the green as he takes a turn as Grand Marshal in the annual Jim Monaghan's St. Patrick's Day Parade, which starts and ends at Molly's at the Market on March 16. EWE will be joined by his wife Trina, and revelers who will no doubt be eager for a kiss on the cheek from the Silver Fox.
