The annual St. Patricks Day Parade takes place every year on March 17 (March 16th in 2013, due to the holiday falling on a Sunday). The parade begins at 11am on Fifth Avenue at 44th Street and marches up 5th Avenue to 86th Street. You can plan on it lasting about three hours. Wear green and join the other 150,000 people celebrating our nation's Irish heritage. The Saint Patrick's Day parade has been a tradition since 1766!
