Staff Pick: St. Patrick's Day Parade

Columbus Alive

There's no better way to kick off a day of pints and Jameson than with one of Columbus' best parades - hordes of revelers all decked out in green and old-timey hats. If you're lucky, you can even spot a leprechaun. The only way it could be better is if the Scioto were green.

It's quite a sight, so make sure to stake out a good spot. The parade begins 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Nationwide and John McConnell boulevards and marches through Downtown on High Street before turning west on Broad Street and heading to the Veterans Memorial. Stop by the Irish Family Reunion at Vets for some food and drinks before you begin celebrating at your favorite pub.
