The Irish Channel St. Patrick’s Day Club holds an annual Mass at noon at St. Mary’s Assumption Church (on the corner of Constance and Josephine Streets). After mass, the party begins with the annual parade! 2018 brings anew route with the parade begining on the corner of Napoleon Ave. and Tchoupitoulas St around 1:30pm (or a little earlier, depending when mass ends). Floats will continue down Napoleon Aveune, turning onto Magazine Street and taveling to the end on Jakcson Avenue. The parade will pass by bars like Balcony Bar and Tracey’s, where onlookers can see floats and catch throws.
The St. Patrick’s Day Club Block Party also takes place on March 17 from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. at Annunciation Square, where there will be Irish food, music, drinks, and traditional dancing. Proceeds at this party benefit St. Michael’s Special School.
