The South Side hosts this annual St. Patrick's Day celebration, which—unlike the city's downtown parade—actually takes place on the holiday it honors. The procession of floats, bagpipes and marching bands moves north on Western Avenue, beginning at 103rd Street and ending at 115th Street. Though it was once common-place to find attendees imbibing along the route, the city has increased the fine for open container violations in recent years in an effort to make parades throughout the city more family-friendly (in other words, the green beer can wait until after the event).
