There’s no denying that it’s a good day to be Irish in Boston on St. Patrick’s Day. Every year on March 17, Boston shows the rest of the country how St. Paddy’s Day is really celebrated. Yet not even all the corned beef hash, “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” pins, and Guinness in the world can complete the day without a front row seat to one of our most celebrated events. Check out these photos from Sunday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Southie:
