Destination: St. Patrick’s Day Weekend In Holyoke, MA


I don’t run the Road Race, I drink to support it.

It’s tradition for me to go home for the St. Patrick’s Day festivities in Holyoke, MA every year.  I’ve missed it one year since I moved to Baltimore in 2006 and I was so disappointed in myself.  Road Race shenanigans on Saturday, enormous parade on Sunday if you’re not that hungover and a whole lot of green and white.  See you if I see you, bitches.  I’ll be the guy with the 40 of Old English.


According to Wikipedia, “Holyoke holds the second largest annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade in the nation, attracting 350,000 to 450,000 people every year.”  So deal with it.
