With July 4th coming and going, it got me to think about what cities are known for each major holiday.

Some holidays that have major parades or events:
New Years
Mardi Gras
St. Patrick's day
Cinco de Mayo
Memorial Day
July 4th
Thanksgiving
Christmas/Winter holidays

I would guess...

New Years:
-New York #1
-Las Vegas
-Miami
-Los Angeles

Mardi Gras
-New Orleans #1
-apparently St. Louis?
-New York

St. Patrick's day
-Chicago #1
-Boston
-New York

Cinco de Mayo
-not sure here...LA?, Houston?, San Antonio?

Memorial Day
-Washington DC #1

July 4th
-New York #1
-Boston
-Washington DC
-Chicago
-Philadelphia

Thanksgiving
-New York #1

Winter Holidays
-New York #1
-Chicago

Thoughts on the best cities for each holiday celebration (feel free to add any holidays I missed)?

Savannah should be up there for St. Patty's.
My personal best for Fourth of July would be Washington DC.
Thanksgiving would be wherever home is (or family)

Some others are:
Halloween - no idea, but I'll suggest Jacksonville simply because Halloween weekend is always when the World's Biggest Cocktail Party (UF vs UGA in football) is scheduled.
Chinese New Year - Probably biggest deal in SF and NYC (Queens)
Oktoberfest - ?Cincinnati?
Super Bowl Sunday - ? (I included it cause it's always listed among the top drinking days every year)
Derby Day - Louisville

Halloween is Salem, MA
Also "celebrate" doesn't seem like the right word for Memorial Day, more like observance.
