South Bend celebrating St. Patrick's Day through the weekend

Posted:

South Bend is celebrating Saint Patrick's Day in style. 

Friday night features the Saint Paddy's Tent Party and Pub Tour. Live music, dancing and games are some of the highlights. It takes place from 5:00pm to 11:00pm, admission is 5 dollars and you must be 21 to enter. The tent is set up on the corner of Michigan and Wayne Street.

Saturday kicks off with the 16th annual Saint Patrick's Day Parade. The city started removing snow Friday to make the parade experience more enjoyable for spectators and participants.

Couple things to keep in mind:

  • The parade starts at 11am but you may want to get there early to get a good spot.
  • The parade will take place on Jefferson Street between Niles Avenue and Francis Street.
  • If you don't plan on attending the parade you may want to avoid the area

Also taking place Saturday morning is an event just for the kids: The Little Leprechaun Contest. Parents and children will be gathering in Howard Park to see which child has the best Leprechaun costume. The event takes place at 10:30am

Saint Patrick's is all about green clothes, green beer and green water. That's why the official greening of the East Race will take place Saturday. It all goes down at Seitz Park, the greening will take place at 11:30am.  Elkhart is also greening the Elkhart River.  That dying starts at 1:00pm on Saturday.

After the parade there will be a fundraiser for the Saint Patrick's Church. It take place on Washington Street at Knights of Columbus. The after-party starts at 12:30pm.

If you're in the mood for some live Irish music you are in for a treat. The Fiddler's Hearth will have live music Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Kennedy's Kitchen is one of the featured acts.
