There will be things going on all week long - Mon and Tue are the slowest and weekends are the busiest.

If you are there over St. Paddy's Day, you will find plenty to do for sure. I believe the parade in the French Quarter is on March 15, 2013. We were there a few years back and had a great time.

If you can get there for St Patricks day, that is a blast! Two parades I remember, one being in the Irish Channel and one in the French Quarter later that day. The parade in the Irish Channel threw cabbages and carrots from the floats along with beads
