Saint Patrick’s Day is Friday, March 17th this year. No matter where you live, I would venture to say that there will be St Pat’s Day events in your area. Here’s 5 fun ideas to celebrate this Irish holiday with your little leprechauns.
- Participate in a Fun Run
Over this festive weekend, all across the US, families will be lacing up their sneakers to walk, jog, run or slog through a race. Many runs are free or low cost and some even provide you with Irish-ish swag. These races very in length so get online and check out what’s happening in your local area.

- Attend a Parade
Grab some chairs and plant your paddy’s on the sidewalk and if you’re lucky you’ll see some wild floats. Actually why not press your luck and enter a float in the parade? Your float could be as simple as dressing the kiddies up in their best green duds and have them ride their decorated bikes. Check your town’s website for if, where and when a Saint Paddy’s Day parade will be happening near you.

- Wear Green
The Harts & Pearls Emerald Velvet Turban Head-Wrap is the perfect accessory to complete your Saint Patrick’s Day look. It’s retro inspired and ultra soft. Once you wear this turban, you’ll want to adorn it again and again long after the holiday. This turban fits and looks fabulous on little ones as well and would be perfect for matching Mommy and me outfits. Why not order two? For our Washingtonian gals, order by March 15th and our out-of-state ladies be sure to order by March 13th to receive in time for Friday, March 17th.
- Listen to Irish Music
