If you love a parade, then you've got to love St. Patrick's Day on Long Island. And you don't have to be Irish to join in the fun at the many parades happening over the next few weeks. Expect to see pipe-and-drum bands, step dancers and a contingent of politicians who'll be shaking hands with the crowds lined up along the streets of Nassau and Suffolk to cheer everyone on.
