This weekend marks the kickoff of St. Patrick's Day season here at the Jersey Shore with the Belmar St. Patty's Day Parade. What's your favorite thing about St. Patrick's Day at the Shore?

There's a lot to love about this time of the year and nobody knows how to celebrate it better than we do here at the Jersey Shore. As we prepare for the party that is March to begin we ask you to tell us the thing that makes you happiest this time of year.

Of course, there's the parades. St. Patrick's Day parades will pop up all over the Shore in the next couple of weeks and they can be a great time. Then there's the food...corned beef and cabbage and the rest and nobody does it better than our local restaurants.

Then there's the simple fact that so many people consider St. Patrick's Day to be the biggest sign of the beginning of spring, and it's not far off. Spring officially begins March 20th.

And then there's the special drinks that go along with St. Patrick's Day, and that all starts with the traditional green beer. Oh, and of course the parties that go along with the green beer.

So, what's your favorite part of St. Patrick's Day? Vote and let us know!
