We have the luck of the Irish here on Long Island! There is so many fun things for families to do to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day across the Island. Where will you celebrate?
You do not have to be Irish to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day!
Festivals, Parades, Family Events, Craft Ideas and so much more…
The first thing I look for is a parade. St. Patrick’s Day parades are so much fun and the kids love them as much as the adults do. News 12 Long Island has a great list of the parades that start this weekend. Since St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Thursday there is celebrations two weekends in a row. Now, if that ain’t luck I don’t know what is.
