# Go Where the Parade Is
The most prominent of all St. Patrick's day 2022 parades celebrations will happen in March in Downtown, Toronto. It is a wonderful event to celebrate the colourful and vibrant culture, heritage, and community spirit of the Irish. Your kids will love the sea of big green unique floats, leprechauns, and marching bands. The celebration has been happening since 1987 in Toronto and gives the vibes of an Irish festival and cultural feast day.
# Get Crafty
Head to your nearest art shop and get lots of green paper and craft supplies. Involve the kids to creatively design their own tiny leprechauns and leaf clovers. Let them help you deck up the house with unique green décor. Michaels Art & Craft is a great shop to get stuff for St. Patrick’s Day.
# Explore Irish Music & Movies
The best thing about Canada is the cultural diversity it offers. This has helped us enjoy a variety of cuisine, listen to a world of music, and get exposure to unique cultural traditions and art. This St. Patrick’s Day, listen to some of the best Irish artists like Enya, U2 or The Cheiftains. Our favourite movies for St. Patrick’s Day are The Secret of Roan Inish and Waking Ned Devine.

Try these unique and popular Scottish and Irish Cultural cuisines like potato dishes, soda bread, and dinner pies and take your dinner to the next level.
