St Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, for Irish and those of Irish decent this is a day to celebrate your heritage. Many people will attend parties and parades and what better way to celebrate by wearing a kilt outfit to show your heritage. The pipe bands marching in parades will wear a kilt of either a plain colour which displays their regiments, a county tartan or quite often a generic tartan such as Heritage of Ireland.
The largest St Patrick’s Day parade takes place is in New York and has been held every year on March 17th since 1762, this year marking it’s 250th anniversary. This is primarily a military parade with many pipe bands, and up to 300,000 participants. Irish Pipe bands will often wear kilts are part of their uniform and are joined by numerous kilt wearers amongst the spectators.
It is fitting that the largest St Patrick’s parade is held in the USA seeing as 11.9% of Americans can trace their heritage back to Ireland. 22 of the US presidents including 44th President Barack Obama trace their roots back to Ireland.
