Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day In New Orleans With Kids

St Patricks Day In New Orleans 1024x576 1

As a kid St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t a big day in our family. We’re not Irish, and so most of the time, I forgot even to wear green. As an adult, I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day in the New Orleans area. I’m sure no one does it as we do.

I mean, where else can you catch cabbage from a float or go home with all the produce you need for a month? I think I like the St. Patrick’s Day parades more than Mardi Gras. It's honestly my favorite part of spring in New Orleans. 

I love how we take St. Patrick’s Day to a whole new level! Here are some fun ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in New Orleans with kids. The best part of this St. Patrick's Day fun, it's FREE!
