My name may be Erin, and I may be Irish, but I’m not 100% certain…but that doesn’t stop me from celebrating a little bit every March 🙂 No matter your name or cultural heritage, check out these fun activities.
We have included lots of ways to fill your day with a little luck of the Irish for St. Patrick’s Day and make you shout, “Erin go Bragh”! Some are just for fun and some are educational. Find a little bit of everything for everyone. The Town of Erin’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is ON for 2023! *Please note it is not the most family friendly parade.
