St. Patrick's Day Parade
Begins at 5th Avenue and 44th Street
Concludes at 5th Avenue and 79th Street

Saturday, March 16, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 or 3:00 p.m.

Some consider the New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade to be the largest in the world. New Yorkers from all backgrounds come out in green to celebrate the holiday. The best viewing spots are at the north end of the St. Patrick's Day Parade route as the crowds throng the sidewalks below 59th Street. The crowd is densest at St. Patrick's Cathedral and in the area immediately around there and tends to lessen as you move north along the parade route. So find the spot that that works well for you and enjoy the festivities! But most importanty, have a fun and safe holiday!

Yoga at Lululemon
Venues vary (please see website)
Every Saturday, 9:00 a.m.

Lululemon provides free Yoga lessons--you don't even have to bring your own mat--every month! Instructors and locations rotate each week, so check out their website for more information.
