In just over 24 hours, Atlanta's famed Peachtree Street will play host to the 133rd annual St. Patrick's Parade.

This year's parade features a variety of floats, bands, and a very special guest -- Enda Kenny, the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland.

Stepping off at 12:00 Noon, the parade starts in front of the High Museum of Art, then proceeds down Peachtree Street, and ends at 5th Street.

Atlanta’s St. Patrick’s Day parade – started by the city’s Hibernian Benevolent Society (a Catholic and Protestant fraternal organization) – dates back to 1858, making it one of the country’s oldest.

Parking is limited, so MARTA is encouraged.
