Next to the Fourth of July, no holiday seems to result in more parades — or bagpipes — than St. Patrick's Day. The March 17 holiday is a day where everyone is a little bit Irish and drinking a green Miller Lite seems a little less gross than it would be on any other day of the year. Of course, depending on how many of those festive green beers you throw back, your body may be feeling rather unlucky in no time.
Dozens of cities across the United States and the world roll out their own St. Patrick's Day parades, some of them dating back hundreds of years. St. Patrick's Day happens to fall on a Saturday this year, making it ideal for all sorts of Irish revelry. While some cities had their annual St. Patrick's Day celebration a week earlier — don't ask us why — the majority of cities are slated to have them between March 16 and March 18.
