Green Memphians line the street for the Cooper-Young St. Patrick’s Day Parade

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – Flowers and greenery filled the streets of Midtown Memphis on Friday in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.

The Memphis Irish Community once again held its annual parade in the Cooper-Young neighborhood on Friday morning to honor the Irish holiday.

The Irish Society of Memphis has been a presence in Memphis for the past 200 years, educating Mid-South residents about Ireland’s rich heritage, culture and people!

A Memphis man said it’s his daughter’s favorite holiday.

“You know, Memphis can really throw a party, and we just love being a part of these local celebrations,” Neal Hayes said. “Especially in Cooper-Young. It’s smaller, so it has a neighborhood feel, and we like it a lot. “

Celebrations will be held across Memphis on Friday.

Also in the Cooper-Young area, Celtic Crossing hosts its annual all-day celebration with traditional Irish fare, green beer, live music and Irish dancers.
