Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Check Out 3 of Atlanta’s Best Celebrations of Irish Luck
Considering the name of our firm, we couldn’t just let St. Patrick’s Day pass by on March 17 without comment! Though St. Patrick’s Day started as a religious holiday in Ireland, here in America, it has become an excuse to make merry, wear green, and raise a pint of dyed beer. Kevin Patrick is as Irish as they come, so in the spirit of the holiday, we’re sharing the details on three of Atlanta’s best celebrations of Irish luck. ST. PATRICK’S GREEN MILE BLOCK PARTY This early St. Patrick’s Day bash is the biggest green-clad celebration in Atlanta, welcoming at least 2,000 people every year. This time around, more than 25 restaurants and bars are participating in the fun, offering complimentary Irish drinks, themed bites, party beads, and other perks to registered partiers! To learn more about the Friday, March 13 event, visit AtlantaBarTours.com. SHAMROCK ‘N ROLL ROAD RACE If a family-friendly event is more your style, you can’t go wrong with the Shamrock ‘N Roll Road Race, which takes off from Atlantic Station at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 14. Kids and pets are welcome on the 5K and 10K race routes, and participants can run, walk, or stroll across the finish line. Proceeds from the event benefit the Junior League of Atlanta, and costumes are encouraged! Head to JLAtlanta.org/Shamrock-n-Roll-Road-Race to learn more.
ATLANTA ST. PATRICK'S PARADE 5K RUN/WALK Another active option is the Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade 5K Run/ Walk, a morning run that launches at 9:45 a.m. and finishes for an early lunch (and free beer for those over 21) on Peachtree Street. Runners can linger after the race in Colony Square for a St. Patrick’s Day Parade and enjoy dancing, drinking, and live music at Luck of the Square! Costumes are welcome at this bash, too. Visit IWeLife.com to learn more and register for the race. If you decide to give one of these events a try, we hope the luck of the Irish is with you! Just remember to stay off the road if you’ve had one too many green beers — we’d hate for you to end up in our office after what should be a fun night.
