This weekend thousands of people will be celebrating St Patrick’s Day. The traditional Irish celebration is a much loved occasion across the world. Although celebrations predominately take place in Ireland, parades and festivals are also been held in British and American cities.

St Patrick’s Day celebrations are vibrant and joyous occasions that showcase all things Irish. Parades generally include wonderfully decorated floats, marching bands, live music, Irish dancing and street performers.

If you’re not fortunate enough to catch a St Paddy’s Day parade in Ireland- huge celebrations will be taking place across all Irish cities including Dublin, Belfast, Limerick and Tipperary. I’m sure that a St Patrick’s Day celebration will be taking place in a city near you.

Birmingham St Patricks Day parade

Birmingham and Manchester have already hosted their St Patrick’s Day parades but that won’t stop further celebration over the weekend. As all major cities in the UK will be paying tribute to the Irish with dance troupes lining the streets, folk music, and of course lots of Guinness on sale in pubs and bars.

If you’re looking for a family day out and a traditional St. Patrick’s Day parade then head to Trafalgar Square, London, where the Irish will be celebrating in style. Sunday’s event will feature endless floats, music, dancing and all sorts of performers plus stalls upon stalls of delicious food and drink. The celebrations will stretch through the city starting in Green Park before reaching Trafalgar Square in the afternoon where revellers can enjoy the Irish festivities until Sunday evening.

Emerald green is a favourite in St Paddy's Day celebrations

Although I won’t be venturing to Dublin or London for St. Patrick’s Day I will be celebrating the great Irish festivity with some of my closest family and friends. I’ll be “Chief Irish Coffee Maker”, fingers crossed someone else will make a Chocolate Guinness Cake– it would be rude not to on St Patrick’s Day after all.

Did you know- Americans love St Patrick’s Day, so much so, that they hold some of the largest celebrations in the world, most notably an enormous parade in New York. And since 1962 the Chicago River has been dyed emerald green on St Patrick’s Day to celebrate the Irish!
