That’s right…..St. Patrick’s Day is just a few weeks away, which means it’s time to start planning where you want to celebrate. There are a number of cities in and around Florida that know how to throw a party! Hopefully, we can help with a few ideas of where you can party hardy:
1. St. Augustine begins their festivities on March 9th through the 10th with their Celtic Festival. Complete with highland games, parades, whiskey tasting, vendors/exhibitors, performers and many more activities to make the weekend worth your while! Some of the area exhibitions include the Gamble Rogers Folk Festival , Honey Bunch face painting and Irish water dogs…just to name a few. Adding to the excitement are over 30 merchandise vendors and 14 different food vendors! Any way you look at it, you’ll have an exciting weekend of fun!
2. Key West, Florida boasts the “Bar None Suds Run”, on March 16th, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Southernmost Beach Cafe. This is a totally different way to celebrate but has grown over the years since 1979 when it first began. It starts by drinking a beer at the first bar and then the run continues through about 10 different bars with a beer at each bar! It’s a crazy time but still loads of fun! If you’ve ever been to Key West, you know the party never ends!!
3. Savannah, Georgia is known to host the second largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the world! The parade, which begins promptly at 10:15 on March 16th, has over 350 participants and runs for three hours. Afterwards….take a walk down River Street and take in any one of the restaurants or pubs ….. many of which will be having their own celebration! After all the celebrating, try one of Savannah’s ghostly tours that they’re so well known for.
