With a little over a week to go in February, it’s just about time we set our sights on the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day celebration here in Dallas-Fort Worth. Like in so many different parts of the country, St. Patrick’s Day is a time to celebrate Irish heritage and culture, the long-standing Catholic faith, and of course drink green-colored beer and eat corned beef and cabbage. But when it comes to all the fun and exciting festivities and events occurring on and around March 17th, nothing quite says St. Patrick’s Day in Dallas like the annual Greenville Avenue St. Patrick’s Parade.
Originally starting back in 1979, the Greenville Avenue St. Patrick’s Parade is now considered the signature event of St. Patty’s in not only the Dallas-Fort-Worth area, but the entire Southwest. Whether it’s the floats, the costumes, the people or the bagpipes, it’s easy to see why the Greenville Avenue St. Patrick’s Parade continues to be a family favorite year in and year out. But in a city as great as Dallas, the parade certainly isn’t the only thing to do come St. Patrick’s Day week. To learn what else is happening on or around March 17th, take a look at just some of the other highly-anticipated St. Patrick’s Day 2014 events below:
