Friends were spotted laughing and dancing on the streets of Newcastle while festival-goers in Cheltenham partied into the night.

It is the first time in two years that Brits can venture out on the big day after Covid restrictions blocked the bonanza in 2020 and 2021.

Tonight groups of friends made the most of their fresh liberties – with boys and ladies wearing shamrocks and hats.

A group of girls were seen dancing through the street wearing shamrock headbands while others wore flower leis Irish flag colors.

Last night boys were spotted in Playboy-esque bunny ears while two women were spotted in bold jerseys for the brisk temperatures.

The couple dressed the ensemble with matching white socks and shoes, their long tresses left untouched by the passing showers.

A group of grinning girls covered their costume hats with plastic bags in case the drizzle caught them.

Groups of young men posed for photos in green suits, leprechaun hats and rugby jerseys.

A mischievous couple in Speedos posed with their bottoms facing the camera while one gave a thumbs up.

The couple wore floral shirts with a splash of green and different shades of blue.

Fans were spotted in various costumes nodding to St Patrick’s Day on day three of the Cheltenham Festival in Cheltenham, England, as celebrations continued across Ireland.

Massive crowds took to the streets of Dublin after Covid-19 caused events to be canceled for the past two years.

Cities, towns and villages across the island celebrate March 17 following the easing of coronavirus restrictions. Up to 400,000 people are expected to attend the traditional Dublin parade and many more will be watching live on television.

In March 2020, with the onset of the global pandemic, many St Patrick’s Day plans were canceled and parades in Dublin and Belfast were cancelled.

This year the parade in Dublin started in Parnell Square and wound its way through O’Connell Street and around College Green before winding through Lord Edward Street and ending in Kevin Street around 2pm.

HOLLYWOOD IN DUBLIN

Hollywood actor John C. Reilly was the international guest of honor at the Dublin parade.

The Irish-American star said it was a great opportunity to “spread joy” at a difficult time in the world.

Wearing a green tweed suit from Dublin’s famous shop Louis Copeland & Sons, Mr Reilly said he was excited to be at the celebrations.

Anna McGowan, interim director of St Patrick’s Festival, said it was emotional to see the parade return.

She said: “It has been three calendar years since the last parade and there are so many people whose lives are about putting on a show and being able to do that this year and people for ours back on the streets of Dublin welcome national holidays, it’s so emotional and so important.

“I’m thrilled to be back.

“This parade is going to be bigger and brighter than ever. We were able to double the creative content of the parade.

“We’re also very excited to welcome our international marching bands back to Dublin, so it’s going to be fantastic.”

In Belfast, the first parade since 2019 left City Hall at 1pm.

Organizers said the theme was “We’re All Patrick, We’re All Belfast”.

The parade passes along Donegall Place, High Street, Bridge Street and Waring Street, ending at Donegall Street near Writers’ Square.
