St. Patrick’s Day (Mar. 17) is a day for fans of Irish music, dance, beer and spirits to get together. To celebrate, parades are held in Ireland and all over the world on or around Mar. 17. Since 2014 Fukuoka has celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a parade inside the Shintencho shopping arcade. Wear something green, the Irish color, or come in fairy costume if you’re feeling creative for the costume contest! There will be lucky draws too, and a pub crawl after the parade. Soak up Irish culture with music and dance!
