Being born and raised in Montreal, I am a big fan of St Patrick’s Day. I’m not sure if this is still true, but growing up, Montreal had the second largest parade in North America after Boston. So every year we headed out in the bitterly cold March weather to enjoy this iconic event. As I grew older, the day also involved Apple Cider and green beer. Anyhow, I digress…I had a look around the net to see what’s on offer in Brooklyn and started with the main Family friendly places that I have been so far, this is what I found.
