of beer and having lots of fun. So who really cares, right?

Chicago kicks off the holiday with TWO parades to choose from for the city-wide celebration, but the most exciting part of the Chicago festivities is the Dyeing of the River with 100 pounds of green dye. For the past 43 years, Chicago has dyed its river a fabulous shade of shamrock green prior to the parade. After the parade enjoy some green beer at local hot spots like The River Shannon, Fado Irish Pub, or Poag Mahone’s. Chicago is truly a sight to behold during this rowdy holiday.
Savannah is known for hosting the second largest parade in the world, attracting some 400,000 annual visitors. The St. Paddy’s celebrations go on for several days in Savannah and include the “greening” of Forsyth Park Fountain and related food and music festivals. A couple of days before St. Patrick’s Day and on St. Paddy’s Day itself, River Street is one big Irish party! Basically, this strip of bars, art galleries, antique stores, gift shops, dance clubs, restaurants, and boutiques is party central on any given weekend, but during the St. Patrick’s Day celebration, it’s totally crazy!
The celebration in Boston begins a full week before St. Patrick’s Day and doesn’t stop until the green beer runs out. Known for its long-standing Irish heritage, and more Irish pubs than any other place in the USA, Boston is an obvious choice for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. The Roisin Dubh, or “The Black Rose” is an integral part of Irish folklore. And Boston’s own Black Rose follows in this Irish tradition, making it a great place to hang a hat for the night’s festivities. Live, traditional Irish music, classic cuisine and a Guinness are only a few of the essential provided.
