St. Patrick's Day
St. Patrick's Day is one if the not the most festive day in Ireland. It takes place every year on March 17, the date that marked the death of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
The Irish are known to celebrate this day with massive parades.. and a whole day of drinking. But you don't have to travel all the way to Ireland to get a feel of the festivity. Just suit yourself up in green attire and join in the parade that will start at 11am. The participants will march up from the 44th Street all the way to the 79th Street. Along the way - on the 50th Street to be exact - you will get to see the St. Patrick's Cathedral. The parade is expected to end at 5.00pm, just about the time that happy hour starts!

After having his wife and daughter brutally attacked by home intruders, Kersey decided to take on a new persona and cleanse his city from criminals. But the question plaguing the public's mind when they learn of this anonymous vigilante is whether he is a guardian angel, or a Grim Reaper itself.
