SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Hundreds celebrated Saint Patrick's Day in Syracuse, by heading to Tipp Hill. A daylong celebration began early with Coleman's annual breakfast buffet.
Later, a shamrock was painted in the street outside the pub. The Shamrock painting is a tradition that began 33 years ago and the celebration has grown since.
"This is the second largest St. Patrick's Day celebration in the country, I mean, the whole country. In Ireland, they don't have St. Patrick's Day celebrations like this, and I've been to Ireland,” said Rick Carlesco, Guardian of the Shamrock
Tipp Hill hosts a number of events leading up to the Irish holiday, including the green beer parade and the Shamrock Run.
