Most big cities try to lay claim to having the best festivities for St. Patrick's Day, so in order to try to settle which place is the best to "Shake Your Shamrock," retailer Party City has compiled a list of the top 5:
Chicago - "[F]rom the legendary St. Patrick's Day Parade to the Luck of the Irish Pub Crawl," to "the iconic dyeing of the Chicago River emerald green," the Windy City makes the list.
Boston - "The most Irish state in the country" hosted the first St. Patrick's Day celebration in 1737, "and things haven't died down since...Decide between a Boston Celtics game, 112th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade, or simply having a pint of Guinness at one of the city's many Irish pubs," Party City suggests.
Savannah, Ga. - Putting a "Southern twist...on the Celtic holiday," the city's "not to be missed" festivities include everything from "green grits to green fountains."
Dublin, Oh. - The city named for its founder's birthplace in Ireland boasts days of festivities, as well as a parade that attracts more than half the city's population.
New York - With a parade that brings two million people a year to Fifth Avenue, the Big Apple also boasts the Irish Arts Center, which offers a free day of Irish music and other cultural attractions, the retailer notes.
