What to do for St. Patrick’s Day in Colorado Springs 2019

Everyone’s favorite green holiday is just around the corner! March 17th is Sunday this year, and that means the celebrations and fun events are happening all over town throughout the entire weekend. LOTS happening on Saturday, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy some good celebrations and still have Sunday to finally get in some weekend chores, a hike or some yoga – just remember to wear those green yoga pants!

The first (recorded) parade held for St. Patrick’s Day was in New York City, not Ireland. Thus, this global holiday celebrating Irish culture and heritage has become a cultural holiday celebrated by many here in the U.S. and throughout the world. If you enjoy any excuse to hang out with friends and family, take in a parade, eat some food, and maybe put back a few beers then thanks to the Irish, St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration you can enjoy too!

Here in Colorado Springs we don’t have a river to turn green, but there’s still lots of ways to celebrate with the whole family starting with the 35th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. With over a 100 parade entries, marching bands and more, this is always a fantastic event post one of the largest 5K runs in the state. So, grab your green garb, some friends and family (or framily!) and check out the fun things to do and places to be around the Pikes Peak Region this weekend!
