I am a huge fan of the month of March. The weather starts to warm up, the daylight lasts longer, the grass starts to get greener, spring break is happening, March Madness basketball begins, and one of my favorite holidays is in March- St. Patrick’s Day! To be fair, I am not Irish, but I am huge fan of the color green and all the fun that surrounds this holiday.
We have gathered a list of fun ways to spend this festive holiday around the area. St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Friday (17th) this year, so you can party all weekend long. Don’t get pinched by forgetting your green!
