St. Patrick’s Day is nearly here.

For some, this day is a time to celebrate St. Patrick of Ireland — born in the fourth century — with corn beef and cabbage; for others, it’s a time to go out in the community and find joy and celebrate at various events in their neighborhoods. 

The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade was held the first Saturday of March in Rockaway Beach that featured local community leaders and members of Congress. 

Here are some other St. Patrick’s Day-themed events coming up in Queens.
