Ireland's national day is on 17 March. To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Dublin is decked out in green, white and orange and people take to the streets for a party that usually lasts three days. Concerts, fairs and events are held to display Irish pride. The highlight of St. Patrick’s Festival is the parade, an explosion of colour and creativity that runs along the city's main streets, leaving from Parnell Square.
