Start your celebration of St. Patrick’s Day by watching the oldest and largest New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade on fifth Avenue, Friday, March 17th. If you can’t be there in person, NBC will broadcast the parade with Bag Pippers, marching bands, traditional dancers and more at 11:00 am ET or you can catch it on live stream here . Did you know that this parade dates back 253 years? The first parade was held by Irish soldiers serving in the British army in 1762. Get more history on the parade.
St. Patrick’s Day would not be complete with out a Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner, using the stove top, oven or crock pot method. Get a complete dinner menu recipe with the sides Here (The Honey Roasted Carrots are delicious!)
Did you know? Corned Beef and Cabbage is not a traditional dish for St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland. It was created in America by Irish immigrants. Read more of that fascinating bit o history here.
Bring in a bit of Ireland to go with your dinner, serve Guinness beer. It has a unique flavor from the malt and you can find it at your local grocery store.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day
