Saint Patrick’s Day in New England

Picture of a LeprechaunSaint Patrick’s day may fall on March 17, but the celebrations of the day and of Irish heritage happen throughout the month of March. Of course Boston and Massachusetts with their large Irish-American populations have the largest celebration of the day – the annual South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which also happens to be one of the largest parades in the United States.

Boston, however, does not have a monopoly on St. Patrick’s day and celebrations and attractions that both celebrate the day and Irish heritage can be found throughout New England.
