Utah St. Patrick's Day Celebrations

If you're waiting until March 17 to do your St. Patrick's Day celebrating in Utah, you're waiting too long. ---

On Saturday, March 12, the Hibernian Society of Utah's traditional Salt Lake City downtown St. Patrick's Day parade winds through the Gateway from 400 West and 200 North beginning at 10 a.m. Players from Real Salt Lake serve as the honorary Grand Marshals, leading green-bedecked floats entered by a variety of political, school, and business entities (including this very publication). After the parade, enjoy the Siamsa full of Irish dance, music and food at the Gateway Grand Hall (north end of the mall) from 10:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. The current forecast calls for a 50-degree, partly-cloudy day, perfect for the celebration.

If you're a bit farther north, consider the Celtic Celebration at Peery's Egyptian Theater in Ogden. Stonecircle, Celtic Beat and Galloway Highland Pipes & Drums headline an event also taking place Saturday the 12th, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Wear your kilt or family tartan, and enjoy green beer on tap; tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for children, students and seniors.

Watch for updates on pub events taking place on St. Paddy's day proper.
