MoCo St. Patrick's Day Festivities

With a name like Patti McHugh, you'd expect red hair and freckles.  Yeah, I'm actually Chirish (Chinese marrying Irish/Slovak).  Nonetheless, my daughter is half-Irish which means we need to find some genuine St. Patrick's Day activities in the area.  Here's a few I've found for the whole family:

  • Friday, March 15th - Brookside Gardens is hosting a series of St. Patrick's Day Green and Growing Scavenger Hunts every half hour from 10am-12:30pm.
  • Saturday, March 16th - Washingtonian Center (I-370 and Washington Boulevard) 10am-noon, The City of Gaithersburg, in partnership with the Harp and Shamrock Society of Gaithersburg and The Peterson Companies and Washingtonian Center will host the 13th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade.
  • Sunday, March 17th - Baltimore St. Patrick's Day Parade.  The Shamrock 5k race begins at 1:15pm at Charles and Franklin Streets.  The Parade steps off at 2pm at the Washington Monument, and continues to Pratt Street and Market Place.
  • Saturday, March 16th noon - The Ocean City St. Patrick's Day Parade and Irish Festival is sponsored by the Delmarva Irish-American Club.
For those partaking in drinking festivities, here are some local favorites.  Note those who don't have website links, well, you know they're authentic!
