365 Things to Do in Boston - New Tips Daily

St. Patrick's Day 2015

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sun, Mar 15, 2015

Boston is arguably the next best thing to Ireland in terms of St. Patricks Day celebrations. Boston's long standing Irish tradition is evident in the myriad of festivities planned leading up to and during the holiday week.  Boston held America's first St. Patrick's Day celebration in 1737, and the city still boasts one of the nation's largest St. Patrick's Day parades, plus more Irish pubs than any other place in the USA. Over 600,000 people are drawn to Boston for these renowned celebrations.

 

 

Here's a few more ideas to celebrate (thanks to About Travel):

A Little Bit of Ireland: Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the Reagle Players as they present A Little Bit of   14-15 at the Reagle Music Theatre in Waltham. Buy tickets online, or call 781-891-5600.

Irish Cultural Centre St. Patrick's Celebration: For four days in 2015, March 13-15 and 17, head to the Irish Cultural Centre of New England for a St. Patrick's Day Celebration featuring Irish music, dance and food. There is an admission fee. For more information, call 781-821-8291.

Irish Film Festival: Can't get to Boston until later in the month? You can still celebrate the city's Irish heritage at the 15th annual Boston Irish Film Festival, which runs March 19-22, 2015.

Don't miss Boston's famous St Patrick's Day Parade in Southie this Sunday March 15. Due to massive snow banks, this years parade is a little shorter and starts at the Broadway T station on the Red Line and continues along Broadway where it ends on Farragut Road . Volunteers are clearing the snow from the route, so you should find plenty of good viewing spots along Broadway (kudos to them).  

The parade features an interesting mix of bagpipes, brass marching bands, elaborate floats, military units, dancers, historic Minutemen companies, politicians, entertainers, individual marchers, societies, and other organizations. 

Don't forget to wear your GREEN!
