Everyone has smiling Irish eyes in this green-hued parade. The procession kicks off at Market and 2nd Street—led by a formation of kilted bagpipe players and followed by floats, marching bands, labor unions and Irish dance groups—and winds its way to Civic Center for a raucous festival. Afterwards, walk a couple blocks to any of the Tenderloin’s classic dive bars to keep the party going, or dive into a plate of corned beef at Tommy’s Joynt.
