One of Boston’s oldest St. Patrick’s Day traditions is the Parade through Southie. That’s South Boston to you.  Because March 17 is a Saturday this year, many of the events are happening over the weekend, and the Parade is on Sunday, March 18.  It begins at 1 pm at the Broadway T Stop, continues down Broadway and around to Andrews Square and ends there.  Best bet is to stake out a spot on Broadway and enjoy!

The Dallas St. Patrick's Parade & Festival (formerly known as the Greenville Avenue St. Patrick's Parade) is a Dallas tradition that began in 1979 with a few vehicles and a quick trip down lower Greenville. Now the parade hosts 90+ floats, draws close to 125,000 people, and is said to offer something for everyone's taste, be it bad or good. The parade is traditionally held on the Saturday preceding St. Patrick's Day (March 17) at around 11:00 AM. The procession travels southbound on Greenville Avenue between Wellon Street and SMU Blvd. You should absolutely arrive early for a good viewing spot.
