St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated all over the world by the Irish population and those who are “Irish for the day.” Whether you prefer to spend the holiday with family, eating, drinking or staying active, we’ve found plenty of festive activities for your St. Paddy’s weekend.
Head to historic Commercial Street in north Springfield to enjoy a 3 Day St. Patrick's Day Celebration. For a chance to win a “pot of gold,” pick up a punch card at participating C-Street businesses, get 5 stamps from 5 different businesses and drop your card into one of the lucky pots at White River Brewing, Soozeezbeez Honey Bee-Tique and Ruthies.
This “choose your own adventure” style pub crawl will take you to some of downtown Springfield’s liveliest watering holes and will feature drink specials, local food, a costume contest and more.
Treat yourself to this yummy blend of mint cookies and your choice of vanilla or chocolate frozen custard. Our readers have voted Andy’s Frozen Custard into the Best of 417, so you know it’s good. Hurry to the closest Andy’s location because it’s only available for a limited time!
