St. Patrick’s Day – Cue Emerald Hues To Celebrate
The nation will putting up decorations and donning emerald clothes this weekend as we mark St. Patrick’s Day. Synonymous with fun, celebration and Irish luck aplenty, many of us will be marking the day with our own form of celebration.
Across the pond, Chicago famously turns the river that runs through the city bright green – making it a hard-to-miss event. Closer to home we have the annual St Patrick’s Day parade in London taking place on Friday 16 – Sunday 18 March with the parade and stage lineup on Sunday 18 March at 12pm. This year’s festival will celebrate the achievements and success of London’s Irish women, using the hashtag #BehindEveryGreatCity and will go past some of the city’s most famous landmarks.
