Saint Patrick’s Day is less than a week away! It’s time to get your green on and celebrate Ireland’s most well-known saint, who died on March 17th in the year 460, or 493. Scholars are still debating which year is correct, but had he died in 493, Saint Patrick would have notched an impressive 120 years under his belt.
We’ve done a little Baltimore research to bring you some of the best events the city has to offer to celebrate this year. Whether you head downtown to catch the parade, or toast to Saint Patrick’s longevity in one (or several) of the city’s best bars, we at Observation Baltimore wish you a very happy and safe Saint Patrick’s Day!
