This year's St. Patrick's Day Parade begins at 11 a.m. ET and lasts until 4:30 p.m. ET. NBC 4 New York is slated to broadcast the parade on television.

For those who wish to watch it live in person, the official website for the New York parade states:

"Anywhere along 5th Avenue will give visitors of the Parade a fine location to experience the Parade. If you prefer to stand as close to 5th Avenue as possible, then the earlier you get there, the better."

The parade is slated to begin on 5th Avenue at 44th Street and ultimately end and 5th Avenue at 79th Street.

"The parade is held annually on March 17th at precisely 11:00 AM in honor of St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland and of the Archdiocese of New York," the website reveals. "The parade route goes up Fifth Avenue beginning at East 44th Street and ending at East 79th Street. Approximately 150,000 people march in the parade which draws about 2 million spectators.

"From its earliest days, right up to the present, the NYC St. Patrick's Day Parade has been run entirely by volunteers, many of whom come from generations of families dedicated to the organization of the parade. It takes months of preparation and countless hours to run the world's oldest and largest parade. We could not do it without the commitment of these great women and men."
