Grab your pipes and don your green, for Irish eyes are smiling and celebrating New York City’s oldest parade — St. Patrick’s Day — on March 17.

Whether you hail from the Emerald Isle or not, everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. The parade itself lays claim to being the oldest (it was first held in 1762) and largest of its kind in the world. So clad yourself in kelly and watch bagpipers, marching bands, and assorted revelers from near and far as they march up Fifth Avenue.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade, March 17, from 11 am to 5 pm. Free.

Parade route (Begins at E. 44th Street and Fifth Avenue in Midtown and ends at E. 79th Street and Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side; www.nycgo.com/events/st.-patricks-day-parade).
