St. Patrick’s Day parades are more of a march, than a parade with floats. The reason why, is that from about 1845 – 1852 approximately 1 million Irish came to live in the United States, due to a potato famine in Ireland. To show the U.S. that they were here to stay, the Irish banded together marched up the main avenue in New York City! So, when you attend a St. Patrick’s Day parade, in cities across the U.S., you can expect that everyone marches! There are few to no floats. Traditional Irish bands and dancers fill the streets with music and dancing. Finally, families of Irish descent, march with their clan.
