March; More Than Shamrocks and Basketballs!

When you think of March, is madness the first thing that comes to mind? Or do pots of gold and shamrocks dance in your head? Here is Boston, St. Patrick’s Day reigns supreme over all other holidays; bars open early and close late, restaurants have ‘lucky’ specials, and streets close down for parades and celebrations. Once the Shamrock Shakes are gone, all people can talk about are their brackets! Walk into any sports bar and you’ll see a sea of whatever school’s colors are playing that night. Upsets and Cinderella Stories will be the only thing on SportCenter and bandwagon fans will come out of the woodwork! We want to let you know that there is more to do in Boston that eat Lucky Charms and worry about Overtime! Here are some great events going on that we think you should check out this month!

Sunday, March 1st
Chinese New Years Lion Dance Parade
Boasting the third largest Lion Dance Parade in the US, Boston’s celebration takes place in Chinatown neighborhood of Boston and shuts down Beach Street. Drums, dancers and dragons fill the streets, driving away evil spirits and bringing good luck. Paper lanterns will line the street, a symbol of luck and happiness. Fun Fact: The three major color combinations for dragons are yellow (wisdom), red and black (courage), and green and black (fierceness).
