Raleigh hosts the Southeast’s 2nd largest St. Patrick’s Day parade, and it took place yesterday afternoon! A 90-minute parade was followed by the Wearin’ ‘O the Green festival that boasted plenty of Irish dancing, fair-style fried foods, and Irish beers galore. Downtown Raleigh is home to many Irish pubs, so people of all ages and background (Irish or not) got a bit rambunctious.
I made sure to wear green and enjoy a Harp lager in the sunshine. It was perfect festival weather!
