Swing your shillelagh Saturday at Delray Beachs St. Patricks Day parade, taking place from 1 to 2:30 p.m.! This years event boasts environmentally friendly touches (some may say green) like $1 discounts for drinkers who reuse their beer cups. Party before the parade at 10 a.m. and again at 7:30 p.m. at the parking lot east of Old School Square (51 N. Swinton Ave.). Or go for a three-fer and check out the Green party at the NE Second Ave. Publix parking lot at 2:30 p.m. The parties and parade are free, but expect to shell out some greenbacks for food, drinks, and novelty purchases.
