Wear your green and be prepared to start the day with an Irish breakfast. The actual St. Patrick’s Day is mid-week this year, but Atlanta celebrations will start the weekend before. Ethnic and Cultural festivals are a great place to try new-to-you foods and learn a different culture. Plus they’re always fun.

When: Saturday, Mar. 13, 2010, parade begins at noon

Where: Underground Atlanta

How Much: Free

Details: 2010 will be the largest and best attended St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival since the first held 152 years ago, in 1858. The parade (see details below) ends at Underground Atlanta with vendors, food, free entertainment, music & dancing. The St. Patrick’s Day Festival encompasses various celebrations of Irish heritage and culture. Live Irish entertainment will be showcased throughout the day along with an Irish Breakfast, family activities, vendors and of course, green everywhere.

The 2010 Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade begins at noon and will have over 200 units, including clowns, floats, bands of every kind, military units, Bagpipe & Drum Corps, Irish dancers, dignitaries from Ireland, and Grand Marshal: Coach Vince Dooley.
