It's almost March. And in Hoboken that means that it's time to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
Two major Irish events will be held before it's even March 17.
On March 13, the City of Hoboken is organizing its annual Irish festival for the second time.
The event, which is sponsored by the city and is supposed to be a replacement for the St. Patrick's Day Parade, will be held on Wednesday March 13.
This year marks the second year without a St. Patrick's Day Parade in Hoboken.
Thousands of people are still expected to attend LepreCon on Saturday, a pub crawl that was organized for the first time last year. Many Hobokenites are also expected to be hosting house parties on Saturday, a tradition on the first Saturday in March.
The annual Irish Festival will start at 3 p.m. on March 13 at Frank Sinatra Park.
