Fifth Avenue (44th Street to 79th Street)
Get out your green finery and watch this festive procession of bagpipers, bands, and more. The parade starts at 44th Street & Fifth Avenue at 11 am and gets to 79th Street about an hour later. Avoid the midtown crowds by watching anywhere on Fifth Avenue north of 66th Street. Around 4:30pm at 79th Street (the end of the parade route), get a close-up view of the disbanding marchers.
