St Patrick’s Day Parade: St. Patrick’s Day (March 17 of each year) is celebrated in New Orleans and its suburbs …. as another parade! It’s the perfect season for the festivities … after all, it’s New Orleans, and we love to parade!
Our annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is considered another opportunity for family and friends to be together and enjoy a day. And to this day it seems as if the whole city is present on the road with picnic baskets, umbrellas, and recreational vehicles … enjoying one of the biggest street parties of the year! Give out flowers, pearls, and kisses for men and women in green costumes walking the groups from various clubs in city attire and lucky parade goers along the route.

St. Patrick’s Blessing
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand
“Saint Patrick was a gentleman, who through strategy and stealth, drove all the snakes from Ireland, here’s a toast to his health. But not too many toasts, lest you lose yourself and then forget the good Saint Patrick and see all those snakes again.”
“Here is the enigma of Patrick: he looms large on the imaginative horizon of so many people, yet he saw himself as a Christian bishop from the embattled edge of a crumbling empire.” —Thomas O’Loughlin
“There’s the joy of ole’ Killarney, in these wishes meant for you; There’s a bit of Irish blarney, and a touch of magic too. There’s a wish of lots of laughter, and good luck, be sure o’ that; And a wish that all your dreams may come true in no time flat.”
“St. Paddy’s Day is our celebration day for Ireland’s favorite saint who both saved us from the snakes, and gave us our own day to celebrate our Irish heritage.” —Paddy O’Furniture
