Its digits go on infinitely, without any pattern in the numbers. 3.1415926535897932 . etc. Some folks have been inspired to memorize thousands of digits of pi, or even use the digits to create poetry or music.
Even more pi
Throughout history, people have been captivated by this number because there is no way to calculate it exactly by a simple division on your calculator.
Conveniently, "pi" sounds like "pie," and pies are round. You could celebrate Pi Day in a casual way by grabbing a slice of pastry, or pizza. If you're in enrolled in school, your math class or math department might be doing something special already.

Where Pi Day began
Even the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, will celebrate the day, as "Dali loved the irrational numbers Pi and Phi, often using them and other mathematical principles in his art," according to the museum. If you live in the area, check out their schedule of math inspired films and tours throughout the day.
Math may be scary, but pi is not as evidenced by the widespread revelry on Pi Day.
The "brainiac town" residents "love this event because it's a way for them to celebrate how quirky they are," said Mimi Omiecinski, owner of the Princeton Tour Company, who started Princeton Pi Day in 2009. "A lot of them get super into it." Last year about 9,000 people participated, she said.
Princeton, New Jersey, kicks off Pi Day weekend on Thursday night with a reading by physicist Charles Adler, then heads into a full day of activities on Friday, including a walking tour of Einstein's neighborhood and a pizza pie making contest.
Pi fans who have been spending the last year memorizing digits can show off and compete at the library, where the winner among 7 to 13 year olds can take home a cool pi Under Armour Shoes For Men 2017 hundred (That is, $314.15). The Historical Society of Princeton will have an Einstein birthday party. Tetsuya Miyamoto, inventor of the KENKEN puzzle, will speak at the library as well.

Pi Day began as a small gathering with mostly museum staff. Now it's a public pi extravaganza featuring a "Pi procession," whose attendees get a number 0 to 9 and line up in the order of pi's digits: 3.14159265 . you get the idea.
The House of Representatives supported the designation of March 14 as National Pi Day in 2009. In countries where the day is written before the month, Friday is 14 3, which looks less like pi.

The pie eating contest takes place at McCaffrey's supermarket, while an Einstein look alike competition will match mustaches and wild gray hair at the Princeton Public Library.
Pi is defined as the distance around a perfect circle, or the circumference, divided by the distance across it, or the diameter. It is also involved in calculating the area of a circle, the volume of a sphere, and many other mathematical formulas you might need in the sciences.
Chicago is getting into the pi business too. Lots of restaurants and bakeries are offering Pi Day specials. The Illinois Science Council and Fleet Feet Sports are hosting a 3.14 mile walk/run Friday night, with discounts for anyone named Albert, Alberta or Albertina.
Where Einstein lived
Outside of the physical classroom, Pi Day will be celebrated online through Google's virtual classroom project.
Along with her fascination with Albert Einstein, Omiecinski was inspired to launch a town wide Pi Day after she heard that the Princeton University mathematics department celebrates March 14 with pie eating and pi reciting (As a Princeton student, I got second place for most digits in 2005 and 2006).
But if you happen to live in a particularly pi happy place, you might be Under Armour Shoes Curry 3
For those who can't attend in person, the Exploratorium has a Second Life Pi Day event that includes "irrational exhibits, fireworks, cheerleaders, music, and dancing." The museum also lists a bunch of educational activities to teach about the concept of pi.

is a great day to be a nerd. Across the country, math geeks in museums, schools, private groups and elsewhere gather to celebrate the number pi, approximately 3.14. That's why March 14 3 14 is Pi Day. Albert Einstein was born on this day.
