St. Patrick's Day celebrations around Long Island

St. Patrick's Day celebrations are in full swing in March as Long Islanders are breaking out the green to celebrate the Irish-inspired holiday. Communities are gathering for parades full of floats and Irish step dancers, and enjoying the leprechaun folklore before sitting down to dine on corned beef, soda bread, cabbage and green beer.
