It’s a big weekend here in New York City! This Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day and there’s always something fun to do in the city! Well, here are our "Z pop 3" event picks for this weekend!
1.Watch the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade – You can watch the parade from Fifth Avenue, Between 44th Street and 79th Street
This is an event where people from all over New York City and the surrounding areas put on their favorite green shirt…. or the one they bought just to be festive! Everybody heads to Midtown Manhattan and the Upper East Side for a fun day of celebration!
If you’re looking to take part in the parade celebration it kicks off at 11am and ends around 5pm! You’ll definitely want to use mass transportation to get to the event because there is going to be a lot of street closures.
If you would rather watch the parade from the comfort of your own couch, then you can watch the parade from NBCNewYork.com starting at 11am and ends at 5pm according to the parade organizers.
2. Mac & Cheese Smackdown – Brooklyn Expo Center, Greenpoint
