Things to do in and around Louisville for St. Patrick’s Day
The best thing to do in Louisville for St. Patrick’s Day is the Louisville St. Patrick’s Day Parade along Baxter/Bardstown Road. For 2012, it is Saturday March 10th starting at 3pm.It wraps up at 5pm and you can head to the party in front of O’Sheas! We went last year and I wrote a review, it was a fantastic parade.
For the entire month of March, families can participate in the “Luck of the Irish Scavenger Hunt” at the Crescent Hill Library. Kids can looks for the shamrocks and sneaky leprechauns to find the pot of gold!
For a night out without the kids, you can go to the Wearin’ O’ the Green Party at the Boys and Girls Haven gym and enjoy a cash bar, some food and great live music. This event is on March 3rd from 7:30pm to midnight.
