Watch St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2010 Live Online
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all! Today (March 17) millions of people in many parts of the world will go green and celebrate this holiday with parades, good cheer, and perhaps a glass of Guinness.
Originally a religious feast to honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick’s Day has evolved into a celebration for all things Irish. It is a public holiday in Ireland and is also widely celebrated in Great Britain, Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand among others.
Dublin will definitely be swamped in a flurry of green and there will be parades in more than 100 other Irish cities and towns. But if you can’t be in Ireland, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York is the place to be. The city will be transformed into a multicultural celebration for the four-hour spectacle, in which you will see street theater troupes, artists, giant puppetry, dancers and marching bands.
Make sure to come back later at around 11 AM EDT to see the live stream of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Tune in so you can experience the event in NYC first-hand, and interact by posting comments below this post.
