Saint PatrickSaint Patrick's Day Celebrations 2006
Friday, 17th March 2006

On St Patrick’s Day, March 17th, over 50 million people around the world will celebrate the death of Ireland’s patron saint over 1500 years ago. There will be huge parades in Dublin and New York, in Chicago they’ll dye the river green and in New Orleans they’ll stage a massive street party where vegetables are thrown in friendly battle. In Moscow, the street where the parade is held has only otherwise been closed for revolutions. In Brazil, the day ends with the Irish Samba, a dance fusion created by the coming together of hip-swinging Brazilians and riverdancing Celts. If, however, you want to experience the real story of St Patrick and enjoy the celebrations in his own backyard, there is only place to come – Ireland and St Patrick’s Country!
Celebrations include carnival parades and cross-community festivals.
