New Orleans St. Patrick's Day Parade Specials!

Posted on: February 27, 2009 | Posted in: Specials

It's the perfect season for another celebration. Our annual St. Patrick's Day Parade is a springtime event in the Big Easy with friends enjoying a day outdoors. It seems as if the entire city is on the street with picnic baskets, umbrellas, and fun...enjoying one of the biggest street parties of the year! Walking groups from various clubs in the city dress in costumes of green give out flowers and beads to lucky parade goers along the route. Music adds to the festivities with bands and walking groups dancing down the street...only stopping to award their beautiful beads and flowers to the lucky parade goers along the route.
Floats and truck floats respond to the call, "Throw me something, Mister!" Historically, the parade's most famous throws are cabbages, carrots, onions...and moon pies!
