Let's try this again. It's time for Utica's St. Patrick's Parade - Saturday, March 25, 2017. There's still going to be lots of fun as that green line runs down Genesee Street and everyone moves along to the post-parade festivities on Varick Street.
There are few holidays that create more excitement and festiveness than St. Patrick’s Day. All over the country, people crowd the local pub in green clothes where they guzzle a ton of green beer, only to puke it back out in a green mess and wake up the next day in a green haze.
Everyone enjoys putting on their best green clothes on March 17th and being Irish for a day. We’ve all heard there was a saint and something to do with snakes in Ireland and now we have parades and drink green beer. But what do we really know about St. Patrick’s Day?
