Charter a Private Jet to St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day

Mar 17, 2020

Private Jet to take you to your event

Who was this St. Patrick guy in whose memory Irish and Irish wannabes around the world watch parades, do a jig and quaff millions of pints of Guinness beer every year on March 17?

Well, seems he wasn’t even Irish. His name was Maewyn Succat and he was born in Britain in the late 4th century.

We can get you there

If you want to get to any of the hundreds of parades and festivals celebrating the holiday, Paramount Business Jets can arrange a charter flight for you into any nearby airport.

It’s no surprise that the 200-year-old parade, held on the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day, is one of the biggest in the world. After all, St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland.

The city of Chicago has been dying the Chicago River green for St. Patrick’s Day since 1961. It’s become a tradition for some half a million people to line the river banks to watch 45 pounds of environmentally friendly green dye turn the normally murky river a bright shade of green the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day. A three-hour parade follows.

If you’d like to see the backward flowing Chicago River don its St. Patrick’s Day green color, Paramount Business Jets can arrange a charter flight for you into any nearby airport, including:

St. Patrick's Day - Montserrat

This British West Indies island is one of only two places outside Ireland – the other being the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador -- where St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday. Known as the Emerald Island of the Caribbean, Montserrat was a refuge for persecuted Irish Catholics in the 17th century. Most of the island’s 5,000 inhabitants claim some Irish tie. But, even if not Irish, there’s reason to celebrate during the 10-day festival. March 17 also marks the date of the island’s first slave rebellion, adding African and Caribbean tradition to the celebration.

If you’d like to take part in the "freedom run" marking the slave rebellion and then cool down with a green beer, Paramount Business Jets can arrange a charter flight for you into one of the two nearby airports:

  1. John A. Osborne Airport, TRPG, MNI, Saint John's, Montserrat - (3 miles)
  2. V C Bird Intl Airport, TAPA, ANU, St John's (antigua), Antigua & Barbuda - (38 miles)

St. Patrick's Day - Montreal

In Quebec’s largest city where there has been a St. Patrick’s Day parade every year since 1842, the tie is more to Catholic than it is to Ireland. In the city founded by Catholic missionaries, an annual three-hour parade featuring a massive statue of St. Patrick takes place the Sunday before St. Patrick’s Day.

The St. Patrick’s Day story

Now, back to the story of the holiday’s origins.

Maewyn Succat, a Brit, was captured and enslaved by Irish raiders. When he escaped, he returned to Britain where he joined the Catholic Church and changed his name to Patrick.

Years later, he returned to Ireland as a Catholic missionary.

When he died on March 17, 461 AD, St. Patrick became the patron saint of Ireland. And, in 1903, the day of his death became a sacred national holiday in Ireland. Over the years, the holiday turned secular – drinking was banned on the holiday in Ireland until the 1970s -- and became synonymous with drinking and revelry.

And how did the wearin’ of the green begin? Well, there are a lot of stories. Shamrocks are green. Ireland is often called the Emerald Isle. Or, the most fun reason – green makes one invisible to those impish little trouble-making leprechauns.
