    The St. Patrick’s Day celebration will continue in Hartford days after the parade ends.

    WPLR will broadcast live on March 17 from Mckinnon’s Irish Pub, on Asylum Street in Hartford, from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. After that, the pub will be hosting live music all day, in spirit of the holiday.

    McLadden’s Irish Pub in West Hartford will be open bright and early at 9 a.m. to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. It's never too early to celebrate, so the pub is hosting its very own Kegs and Eggs event, which will pair beer with breakfast. The day will continue with a parade in West Hartford Center and the night will wrap up with live music.

    It’s not St. Patrick’s Day without a little green. Wicked Wolf in New Haven has green beer on its specials for the Irish holiday, along with $5 Jameson shots.

    You might feel like you’ve walked right out of South Norwalk and into Ireland when you visit O’Neill’s Pub and Restaurant on St. Patrick’s Day. The day will start off with a classic Irish brunch buffet and continue to serve all the Irish staples, like fish and chips and corned beef and cabbage all day. The traditional Irish food will be backed by performances of Irish dancers, bagpipes and Irish ballads, which are all a part of O’Neill’s itinerary for the day.

    If you don’t make it to Hartford’s or New Haven’s St. Patrick’s Day Parades, you can head out to New London to Hanafin’s Public House, where they will be kicking off the city’s annual parade at 3 p.m. on St. Patrick’s Day. Once the parade is over, Hanafin’s will be offering live music and Irish specials all night.
