Boston has a high percentage of residents identifying as Irish – nearly 25% of Massachusetts natives claim Irish heritage – which is why it’s no surprise that Boston knows how to throw down St. Patrick’s Day celebrations on March 17th every year.  The true spirit of this day can be seen in the various celebrations across this city.

The South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the country’s largest parade and one you wouldn’t want to miss out on. It is held on the Sunday closest to March 17th and is led by bagpipers at the Broadway T station. Many people also believe that the parades held in Boston match the level of those held in Ireland. This city attracts more than 600, 000 people who want to celebrate St. Patty’s Day in the most exciting way.

Hundreds of thousands come out to the parade held in “Southie,” or South Boston, where there is also access to many Irish pubs.
