From what I can see online they do not sale alcohol at the St Patrick's day parade. Is this correct? Are you allowed to bring your own? Like a few beers, or a bottle of coke mixed with something?

Try a 2 liter of coke and jack? Might even consider mixing an entire 8 pack...just in case one gets confiscated by the leprechaun po-po...

likely not "allowed", but where there is a will, there is a way.



You might be able to get a spot outside of tir na nog if you get there early enough too.

There are laws against drinking on public streets here, so no, you can't bring your own (that anyone can actually tell). But, there are tons of bars around there that will be selling so you shouldn't have any trouble finding alcohol!

If you watch the parade over by Tir Na Nog, they usually have a beer tent set up outside so you can imbibe while enjoying the parade (and the festival will be across the street in Moore Square after the parade). You are only allowed to drink alcohol on public streets when an establishment has set up a designated area for a special event. You might also be able to grab a beverage from one of the bars and restaurants with outdoor seating on Fayetteville St.

Is this parade a really big deal? Will the bars be selling green beer?

The parade is a pretty big deal and a lot of fun. I don't do the green beer thing, but I wouldn't be surprised if some bars do have it. There is lots of festive attire, beads, costumes, kilts, etc. It is supposedly the second largest St. Paddy's parade in the southeast (my guess is that Savannah's is largest).

Here's the parade committee's website with more info: Raleigh St. Patrick's Day Parade & Wearin' O' the Green Festival
