Port Huron's St Paddy's Celebration

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 the things going on to commemorate the holiday in the Blue Water Area, celebrating is definitely on the agenda.

The party in Port Huron starts the week before on Saturday the 10th. In the morning you can raise your spirits and your heartbeat with the Y’s Leprechaun Loop in Port Huron at 9am.

Also at noon on Saturday, March 10th, 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.
