Charleston Saint Patrick's Day Parade

When: Thu., March 17, 8 a.m.-12 p.m. 2016

Historically, we associate St. Patrick’s Day with three things: booze, the color green, and parades. While Savannah may have monopolized one (okay maybe two) of those things, our sister city doesn’t have all the family-friendly charm of Charleston’s St. Patty’s Day Parade. True Irish revelers can start the day at 8 a.m. at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which hosts a celebratory mass. The parade starts at 10 a.m. at King and Radcliffe Streets, proceeding down King and Broad, and ending at the Cathedral of St. Johns. Later in the evening, Na Fidleiri will perform Irish jigs and reels, plaintive ballads, and audience sing-a-longs at the Circular Congregational Church, located at 150 Meeting St. downtown. Na Fidleiri is a local musical group comprised of 20 young fiddlers, ages 10-18, who also perform tunes with a pennywhistle, bohdran, and guitar. Slainte!
