St. Patty’s Day NYC – Parades, Plaids & Prints

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City is the oldest of it’s kind in the country and the oldest civilian parade in the entire world. Over 150,000 marchers make their way up 5th Avenue, receiving a benediction from the Cardinal at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The parade is always lead by the 69th Infantry Regiment, and the parade starts when the commanding officer asks if the regiment is ready, to which they exclaim, “The 69th is always ready!”

NYC was a sea of green and plaid as people flocked to Midtown Manhattan to drink green beer, don fun accessories and claim to be Irish for a day. Needless to say, it was a fun day in the city.
