Saint Patrick's Day is almost here, and this year, the holiday falls on a Monday. What does that mean for you, Long Island? That most likely you'll be able to enjoy a weekend full of fun and festivities in honor of St. Pat's! Whether you're planning to visit one of the many local bars here on LI that will be getting into the spirit of the holiday with green beer and corned beef & cabbage, or you're checking out one of the concerts this weekend, or checking out one of the Saint Patrick's Day Parades happening locally this weekend, the more important thing to remember is staying safe! We've put together some great tips and tricks for staying safe this holiday as you get out there and enjoy all things Irish, so that no matter how you celebrate this holiday, you can have a good time.
The MTA is already anticipating many party goers this Monday for St. Patrick's Day. They will be adding 14 more trains for Monday as to accommodate the St. Patrick's Day Parade in NYC and make sure you get home safely.
Remember LIRR rules, if you do not know them already:
In addition to the rules by the MTA, there are some personal rules you should follow as you head out to any party or parade in celebration of St. Patty's Day. These rules for safety are written in mind that you and everyone around you should return home safely.
Be safe. Do not drink and drive.
