On Monday, March 17th, Westport will transform into a sea of emerald green as the 42nd Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade prepares to move throughout Midtown. Arrive in Westport early as the parade festivities begin at 11:00am and end at approximately 1:00pm. Once again, the parade route will go Broadway from 33rd Street (Linwood) and move south to 43rd Street.
After the parade, continue the revelry in Westport while drinking a green beer and dancing a jig at one of the neighborhood's renowned watering holes. You knew this long awaited day was coming, so plan to deck yourself out in shades of green or be wary of the pinch!
