7 Types of People You See At the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade

If you attended one of the three St. Patrick’s Day parades in the city this weekend, you might have seen these people. And if you’re attending the Manhattan parade in a couple weeks, you’ll definitely see all of these people:

 

1. Girls covered in sparkles

The shimmer is too much for the camera flashes to handle.

 

2. Dudes wearing skirts

We admire this guy’s enthusiasm but we’re also a little concerned that maybe he’s lost his marbles…

 

4. People who are almost too drunk to function

Be particularly wary of the parade goers who are toting red solo cups. They’re the most likely to trip and spill green beer on you.

5. People who obviously got dragged here

“Anna owes me big time for doing this. Can’t wait to get home and wash this green shit off my face.”

 

6. People protesting things that no one cares about

As much as this is a worthy cause, guys, you’re really in the wrong place.

 

7. Full-blown leprechauns

They usually travel in packs, but you might occasionally see one roaming solo. Watch out for them trying to steal your gold.
