Baker is one of the event's headliners.

Several restaurants also had their own outdoor entertainment during the festival, and some avid runners competed in a St. Patrick's-themed 5K race before the parade.

The parade goes up Fifth Avenue over the course of six hours, with the reviewing stand at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Could it be the luck of the Irish smiling down on the 196th edition of the parade?

The following year, 1903, the parade headed up the festival, with many groups and organizations taking part.

Originally, the holiday was to honor St. Patrick who introduced Christianity to Ireland in the 5th Century.

The initiative, which celebrates the island of Ireland and St Patrick, first began in 2010 in Sydney and has gone from strength to strength each year since then. Even those who do not hail from Great Britain take part, however, as social media shows.

A flyer posted around Dublin commanded the reader to "observe the National Holiday as an Irishman should".

"That the feast of our National Apostle should be duly honored throughout the length and breadth of Ireland would be tangible and striking evidence of the existence of our distinct nationality, and of the power of the national ideal to affect the national life to a considerable extent".

An official St Patrick's Day event has been held in London since 2002.

There was plenty of music, marchers and lots and lots of green at the "Traditional" Ancient Order of Hibernians Saint Patrick's Day Parade and the Annual Dogtown Irish Festival on Sunday, in Dogtown, one of St. Louis' oldest Irish neighborhoods. The soldiers, known as St. Patrick's Battalion, flew a green banner emblazoned with the phrase "Erin go Bragh".
