As a kid St. Patrick’s Day wasn’t a big day in our family. We’re not Irish, and so most of the time I forgot to even wear green. As an adult I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day in the New Orleans area. I’m sure no one does it like we do. I mean where else can you catch cabbage from a float or go home with all the produce you need for a month? I think I like the St. Patrick’s Day parades more than Mardi Gras. It’s honestly my favorite part of spring in New Orleans.  I love how we take St. Patrick’s Day to a whole new level! Here are some fun ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in New Orleans with kids. Best part of this St. Patrick’s Day fun, it’s FREE!
