If you're looking to celebrate big this St. Patrick's Day, you better take part in the best event in the state.

The big party is almost here. Of course, we're talking about St. Patrick's Day! My mother used to make corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's day every year. Aside from that, our celebrating was pretty minimal. However, if you're looking to go big this year, you'll want to attend the best event in the state of Louisiana.

But first, let me preface this by saying this website got it wrong. It's actually Patty in the Plaza that is the best event. One day we'll get the recognition we deserve.

That being said, a website called Cheapism has determined that the Irish Club's St Patrick's Day Parade in New Orleans is the best way to celebrate.

They looked at events all across the country and determined the best in each state. There are actually several big events that happen in the Big Easy leading up to St Patrick's Day, but the parade is the creme de la creme. Aside from the parade there are a ton of street parties that also take place with tons of corned beef has and green beer.
