St. Patrick's Day Parade & Faire of Phoenix, Arizona
The streets of Phoenix run green each year as the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade & Faire lures crowds seeking a celebration of Irish and Irish-Arizonan culture. First held in 1984, the parade fills 3rd Street with a procession that includes marching bands, Irish step dancers, floats, bagpipers, and the Queen of the Parade—this year's Arizona Irish Colleen Pageant champion. With so many participants and spectators, the size, grandeur, and spectacle are only surpassed by the Fiesta Bowl Parade.
Festivities don't end with the parade though. The day continues with the Irish Faire, which showcases even more of the Emerald Isle's culture. While savoring traditional food and drink, attendees can peruse the vendors' displays of Celtic crafts and artwork. Bands and dance troupes occupy the fair's three stages, entertaining crowds with live performances.
