In Ireland, they celebrate St. Patrick's Day on March 17. In the Catskills, the party goes on for weeks

St. Paddy's Day may have come and gone, but that won't stop the Delaware County town of Delhi from turning out in full force for the town's third annual parade on Saturday, March 23. The festivities kick off at noon on Main Street, with Irish pipe bands, floats, dancers, and a celebration on the town square.  

If the snow showers forecast for Saturday threaten to dampen your Irish spirit, head for the toasty-warm Shire Pub after the parade -- where dinner will be served, the Binghamton-based Stoutmen will be playing Irish traditional music, and owners Ed and Sally O'Neill are sure to be well stocked up on whiskey. Erin go bragh.
