A Background of the Annual St. Patrick’s Parade in Washington
The very first festivities for St. Patrick’s Day in Washington D.C were held in 1971 and wound along Massachusetts Avenue to the statue of Robert Emmet. Since that very first annual St. Patrick’s parade in Washington, the celebration has grown from what was a leisurely walk around parts of the city by a couple of hundred people to a national parade. Every one of the local pubs in D.C sponsors a parade party in the week leading up to the event which is almost as fun as the parade itself. Attendees can enjoy Irish dancers, singers, musicians and plenty of good sing-alongs.
Everyone in D.C becomes Irish for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a fantastic family day out when everyone comes together to enjoy sharing the culture and celebrating the exciting event.
