Concerts and festivals celebrating St. Patty's Day across the country
What may have once been a holiday celebrating the patron saint of Ireland has now become a day (or week, in some cases) embracing the magic of booze, the joy of jigging—and the possibility of leprechaun sightings.
We've collected the best St. Paddy's Day celebrations photos from Metromix cities all across our great, green beer-lovin' land so we can relive this magical day over and over again.
