Port Huron Celebrates St. Paddy

March 17th is St. Patrick's Day. It's a time for those who are Irish (or simply Irish at heart) to wear their best green and celebrate. With things going on to commemorate the holiday in the Blue Water Area, celebrating is definitely on the agenda.


On Saturday the 11th, raise your spirits and your heartbeat with the Y’s Leprechaun Loop in Port Huron at 9am. Don your finest emerald colored gear as there will be awards for the most innovative outfit, greenest garb and best leprechaun following the race.

Also at noon on Saturday, March 11th, the streets of Port Huron will be filled with the Celtic spirit when the St. Patrick's Parade starts at Pine Grove Park and then winds through downtown.


Following the parade, the revelry continues in Port Huron with the 2017 Pub Crawl. Purchase a wristband for $10 through March 10th ($15 on March 11th) and ride the party buses to many watering holes in the city between 1pm and 7pm.

You can pick up the wristbands at any of the participating pubs or at the Blue Water Convention and Visitors Bureau located in the Blue Water Convention Center at 500 Thomas Edison Parkway in Port Huron.
