See the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade 

No St. Paddy’s Day list would be complete without mentioning this iconic parade – so why not kick off the list with it!? The South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade takes place on Sunday, March 15th and is one of the city’s oldest (and most iconic!) traditions. It begins at 1pm at Broadway Station, continues down Broadway, and ends at Andrews. Check out a detailed map of the parade’s route here as you plan where to camp out for the afternoon.

Our best piece of advice for Landing 53 residents is to stake out a spot-on Broadway and enjoy the cheerful greenery!
