St. Patrick's Day is celebrated with everything from a special Mass to green beer and cabbage and other vegetables tossed from floats. Molly's at the Market (1107 Decatur St.; www.-mollysatthemarket.net) hosts its annual parade through the French Quarter starting at 6:30 p.m. Friday. The Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day Club (www.irishchannelno.-org) has a block party to benefit St. Michael Special School at Annunciation Square Thursday, and Mass at St. Mary's Assumption Church (2030 Constance St.), followed by the Irish Channel Parade, which circles the Garden District on Saturday beginning at 1 p.m. There are block parties and celebrations in the Irish Channel at both Parasol's (2533 Constance St.; www.parasolsbarandrestaurant.com) and Tracey's (2604 Magazine St.; www.traceysnola.com) on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. On St. Patrick's Day, the Irish parade on Old Metairie Road rolls at noon Sunday, and the Downtown Irish Club parades from Bywater to the French Quarter at 6 p.m. The Irish House (1432 St. Charles Ave.; www.theirishhouseneworleans.com) offers a full week of activities, including free screenings of films featuring Ireland, performances by Muggivan Irish Dancers and traditional Irish music and dance, as well as leprechaun costume contests, games and more. — WILL COVIELLO
