st. patricks day parade new orleans

St. Patrick’s Day is sorta like a mini Mardi Gras in New Orleans.

OK, dawlin. We got the nice weather now going on here with mostly sun, some rain and just cool breezes alla da time.

It’s a nice time to be in New Orleans. The azaleas are all bloomin’ and the sky is mostly blue.

But you’ll still need a sweater on some days, and maybe even a jacket on the other ones.

And although Mardi Gras is over we still got some parades goin’ on.

Here we got some fun things to do for ya.
