New York's St. Patrick's Day Parade, held in March every year, is one of the city's largest and most popular parades. It's also one of the oldest in the country; it began in 1762. Large crowds line Fifth Avenue to watch the pipe bands, soldiers, Irish-American organizations, leprechauns and scores of local politicians as they make their way along the Upper East Side. One of the best places to view the parade is on the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral on the corner of 44th Street and Fifth Avenue. Be sure to check out the biggest event of the year!
