There will even be a special event for the dogs during the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the Central Okanagan

Hang on to your tall velvet green hats, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will be taking over the Central Okanagan.

Sip green beer on your bar hopping journey to find the end of the rainbow while linking arms and skipping with your best drinking mates over to these great events. A special event for our furry friends will also be held this weekend.

1. St. Patrick was a fifth-century bishop and missionary in Ireland but wasn’t actually Irish.

2. Corned beef and cabbage are staple foods of the event.

3. St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland is considered a national holiday.
