The Times-Piccayune published this to say about the St. Patrick’s Day parade.
St. Patrick’s Day parades begin rolling Friday when Monaghan’s 25th annual Irish Parade paints the French Quarter green at 5:30 p.m., beginning and ending at Molly’s at the Market, 1107 Decatur Street. Beads and Irish-themed trinkets will be tossed to the crowds by riders in horse-driven carriages, led by the Storyville Stompers marching band and the Kazoozie Floozies.
Be sure to wear green and come get your Blarney on!
