For the 165 times, San Francisco celebrated the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade with traditional Irish fare, live music, extravagant green costume, Irish dance and plenty of candy rain. The parade began at the corner of Market and Second streets where over 100 colorful floats, Irish dance troupes and marching bands will wind their way to Civic Center Plaza.
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade celebrates and showcases the Irish community, Irish culture and character in all its forms. Featured groups from throughout the Bay Area’s Irish community including schools, youth organizations, labor unions, cultural groups, as well as the San Francisco Police and Fire, will proudly march up Market Street.
