When kids think of St. Patrick's Day, they will think of shamrocks, leprechauns, Irish Soda Bread, and all things green. Adults know the real fun of St. Patty's Day, however, the young ones cannot always take part in all of the festivities. Luckily, there are many events happening on Long Island this month for kids in celebration for St. Patrick's Day.
This year, there are many St. Patrick's Day parades are taking place on Main Streets across the Island. Kings Park has already had theirs earlier this month, but there are plenty more to come throughout the month!
