Calling all lads and lasses! It’s that time of year to don your greenest apparel and celebrate all things Irish. Those of you who live here in Edmond are lucky enough to have lots of options for ways to celebrate—and not just on St. Patrick’s Day (which falls on a Sunday this year), but also the day before. Make a weekend of it, meet some new friends, and raise a glass to the Irish!
Lucky Coyote 5K – Kick off the weekend with a family-friendly event right here in Edmond! Hosted by The Patriarch Craft Beer House, the 2nd Annual Lucky Coyote 5K starts at 10:00am. They are offering all kinds of incentives to get you to the finish line, including limited-edition medals and a free beer. You’ll also get a race tee or tank, and if you really bring your Irish game face—costume, that is—you just might win The Luckiest Coyote costume contest! The fun continues after the race with a selfie booth, lawn games, and food.
O’City St. Patrick’s Day Parade – The biggest St. Patrick’s Day event in Oklahoma City is back for another year! Wear your green with pride and head downtown, where the parade kicks off at 10:00am. You can find the perfect viewing spot along the parade route to settle in with friends and family and cheer on this annual display of Irish heritage.
Go Green – Oklahoma City Botanical Gardens – For the big day itself, gather your friends and head to the Oklahoma City Botanical Gardens. The party begins at noon with a performance by the Oklahoma Scottish Pipes and Drums, followed by an afternoon of activities, including food trucks, vendors, an Irish Step performance, and fun fiddling tunes. For kids ages 4-10, you can purchase a wristband for just $5 that gives them access to crafts, games, and kid-centered fun!
Whether you go out and celebrate big or enjoy corned beef and cabbage at home, we wish you a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
