More about the parade:

According to their website, it's best to:

Arrive early to stake out your favorite spot!
The best place for families is at the end of the parade on Blake Street from 23rd to 27th avenues.
March is known for wildly varying weather. It might be cold, hot, who knows! Dress in layers and bring plenty of water.
To catch the parade entries full performance (dancing, full music sets, etc.) the best spot is south of 2Oth avenue on Blake Street (which will be renamed Tooley Street for the Parade). This is probably the most crowded area of the parade and is standing room only. Folks will arrive as early as 6am to stake out a spot.

Attending the parade as a spectator

What to bring

If it is a cold day, bring a warm hat, warm gloves, and warm shoes. For a sunny day, you’ll want to bring sunglasses, suntan lotion, and a hat. The parade goes on rain, shine or snow. And of course, it is traditional to be dressed in GREEN (or orange or white - colors of the Irish flag)!
