    St. Patrick's Day In Connecticut

    Saint Patrick's Day was yesterday, but celebrations are not over in Connecticut!

    What began as a religious holiday to honor the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick's Day has turned into a celebration of all things Irish all over the world. Irish or not, it is a day to wear green, don shamrock earrings, make corned beef, and drink green beer.

    (And let's not forget those Shamrock Shakes at McDonald's!)

    Connecticut has a deep Irish history and the parades are something that people look forward to every year.

    Some other notable parades include:

    • Meriden: Saturday, 2 p.m. from Parker Avenue to East Main Street to Bradley Avenue 
    • Mystic: Sunday, March 20 at 1 p.m., South Lot of Mystic Seaport
