Sport Your Green
At Molly’s in the French Quarter, you’ll find carriage rides and marching groups. Tracey’s is famous for corned beef and cabbage, green beer, and hosting an epic end to the Irish Channel Parade. The Parasol Block Party on 3rd and Constance also has Irish grub, beer and even more surprises.
The Irish Channel Parade is celebrating 66 years of an annual mass and parade starting at St. Mary’s Assumption Church. At the Metairie Road parade, you’ll discover incredible floats, bands and entertainment. However, it’s the Downtown Irish Club Parade with their pit stops on Bourbon Street that really give you the St. Patrick’s in New Orleans experience.
