St. Patrick’s Day Fun

St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year but celebrations are not only happening on March 17th but also on the weekends before and after.

You will have plenty of opportunities to wear green and catch the luck of the Irish! If you’re like us and will probably be celebrating at home with the kids, try some of the ideas we found on Pinterest for even more St Patty’s fun.
