Experience the Magic: Must-Do St. Patrick's Day Celebrations on Cape Cod

Cape Cod’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade (Yarmouth, MA)

The parade is a beloved and much anticipated tradition, and Cape Cod warmly embraces the influx of visitors during the holiday, offering a plethora of activities and venues to prolong the festivities.
