St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, and it's the one day of the year where everything goes green - from clothing right down to beer.
It's a jolly holiday that's great for the entire family. If you happen to live in one of our Ohio communities, there are tons of great places to celebrate all things Irish. Here are a few ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Ohio.
Go to a Parade
The Cincinnati St. Patrick's Day Parade has been going strong since 1967! The parade celebrates Irish culture, complete with traditional Irish jig dancers and music. The parade starts at 12pm, beginning at the corner of Mehring Way and Central Avenue. It then travels east along Mehring Way, north on Nuxhall Way, and west on Freedom Way. The parade finishes off at Freedom Way and Rosa Park Street. If you live in our Residences at Ag47 community, this St. Paddy's day event is not to be missed.
Residents of all ages living at Deerfield Crossing can prepare for St. Patrick's Day by making fun buttons at the Lebanon Public Library. Choose a button style from the provided designs, or make your button unique by bringing in your own. The creativity flows on March 15th between 3:30 and 4:30pm, and is completely free. Reserve your spot here.
Head to Hensville
The Hensville entertainment district in Toledo is one of the best places to celebrate on this green day. In fact, the best celebration is on the rooftop of the Fleetwood Building overlooking the Toledo skyline, the Maumee River, and Fifth Third Field. This lively event will feature lots of entertainment, including a show put on by the Toledo Symphony Orchestra and Toledo Opera. In between the shows, a DJ will play tunes that you can groove to until midnight. This is the best celebration for anyone living nearby at Waterstone Landing.
Celebrate in a Pub
No St. Patrick's Day is complete without celebrating with friends at an Irish pub, which is exactly what The Dingle House is all about. Even when it's not St. Paddy's Day, the staff here wears kilts while serving up pints in the Irish-themed pub. On March 17th, the pub will open its doors at 8am and will be offering $5 Guinness pints and a variety of egg-based dishes. After 2pm, their entire range of 30 taps and 60 different bottled beers will be on sale, with special prices throughout the day. If you live at Tall Timber, you're just a 10 minute cab ride away!
