St Patricks Day RV Rental

St Patricks Day RV Rental
In many countries around the world, St Patrick's Day is celebrated on 17 March. It's a holiday in Ireland of course -- a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland and a bank holiday in Northern Ireland. And it's celebrated in quite a few countries, including the UK, Argentina, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

The tradition for celebrating St Patrick's Day in the USA runs very deep. This excerpt from Wikipedia explains it:
"Irish Society of Boston organized what was the first Saint Patrick's Day Parade in the colonies on 17 March 1737. The first celebration of Saint Patrick's Day in New York City was held at the Crown and Thistle Tavern in 1766, the parades were held as political and social statements because the Irish immigrants were being treated unfairly and New York's first Saint Patrick's Day Parade was held on 17 March 1762 by Irish soldiers in the British Army."
People don't just wear green clothing or drink green Guinness -- Chicago and Indianapolis dye their main waterways green, Savannah dyes their downtown city fountains green and Seattle paints the traffic stripe of their parade routes.

The longest running St. Patrick's Day parades are in the following cities:
  • Boston, Massachusetts, since 1737
  • New York City, since 1762
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, since 1771
  • Morristown, New Jersey, since 1780
  • New Orleans, Louisiana, since 1809
  • Buffalo, New York, since 1811
  • Savannah, Georgia, since 1813
  • Carbondale, Pennsylvania, since 1833
  • Milwaukee, Wisconsin, since 1843
  • Chicago, Illinois, since 1843
  • New Haven, Connecticut, since 1845
