You can find some of the best St. Patrick's Day spirit in the United States in Roanoke, according to Bustle.

The Star City in Virginia's Blue Ridge made Kat Boogaard's list of The 10 Best St. Patrick's Day Cities in the United States in an article posted on Bustle's website.

Roanoke earned a spot on the list alongside other notable destinations around the country for St. Patty's Day fun, such as Chicago, Savannah, and New York City.

With the hugely popular St. Patrick's Day Parade and Shamrock Festival, it's hard not to get caught up in the celebratory fun in Downtown Roanoke. The parade and festival now attract over 25,000 attendees and continue to grow every year.

It's an awesome experience of great live music and Celtic culture and heritage.
