We put together some things that are happening around NYC in the month of March. We will update this throughout the month, so check back here or on our socials.
The NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sat. March 17th
The NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade can be viewed along 5th Avenue between 44th Street and 79th Street from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Parade can also be watched live on NBCNewYork.com beginning at 11:00 a.m. on March 17.
More than 150,000 marchers and as many as two million spectators will partake in the festivities along Fifth Avenue, painting the streets green and orange (and passing landmarks like St. Patrick’s Cathedral) while filling the air with the sounds of bagpipes. As of right now, it’s expected to be cold (around 44 degrees) and clear on Saturday; the storm that’s supposed to hit New York midweek will have cleared out by then.
As with any parade, you can expect normal traffic patterns to go out the window and whether you’re looking to head to the parade or navigate your way around it, it’s best to know what’s going down.
