St. Patrick’s Day & March Fun

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 some are in-person and some are virtual.  

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 2021!

  1. I attend the Erin parade every year and have a great time! Last year was the first time I became worried for people safety. The police NEED to block off hwy k much earlier than 10am. Buses were driving down the parade route to get to that farm to park. It was really late in the am and the crowd was already large. That is just an accident waiting to happen. Cars and buses should be already parked by 9, and streets blocked off. Several people last year almost got hit. Just mentioning to keep all safe!

  2. They have 5k races around here for St Patrick’s Day but after my last 5k in a blizzard, I don’t run any time before June anymore LOL

    1. It’s crazy that some years in March a 5k may be a t shirt event, but other years, you are running in the snow. Never know what you are going to get at St. Paddy’s Day time of the year here 🙂
