A Shamrockin’ St. Patrick’s Day in Lake County 2021

Erin, go Bragh, Lake County! With businesses starting to reopen, we can plan for a Shamrockin’ St. Patrick’s Day in Lake County.

You have the luck o’ the Irish if you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in the land of lakes. Let’s face it, everyone has a little bit Irish in them when it comes to March 17.

Green beverages shall be passed around, maybe a folk song (or “Danny Boy” far too many times) will be sung and clinks of beer mugs will resonate through the air. Besides beer, these places provide your St. Paddy’s Day starter kit: potatoes, corned beef, cabbage and shepherd’s pie.

The Windy City may be dying the river emerald, Lake County will paint the county green! Have a shamrockin’ St. Patrick’s Day in Lake County! Here are a few things to do as we celebrate the leprechaun festivities.
