Check out these events in town for a kid friendly St. Patrick’s Day

Everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day!  

What I remember most about St. Patrick’s Day is my Italian mother struggling to embrace this holiday by putting up green shamrocks in our window so she could appease my Irish father.  Growing up in an Irish/Italian household, my parents had a difficult time holding onto their family’s traditions.  They did try hard to instill some of their culture in us and so to me, St. Patrick’s Day will always be synonymous with my dad.  

If you’re looking for something fun to do with the kiddos and add some new family traditions, you have to check out these local events.  You and the kids will have a blast making some new memories together!
