Saint Patrick’s Day at Lake Chelan is a chance for all community members to claim Irish heritage and celebrate the fare and fun that the Irish people are so well known for. The holiday falls on Friday, March 17, 2017 this year, meaning celebrators will have Saturday to sleep off any of Friday’s festivities.
GoLakeChelan.com has compiled a St. Paddy’s Itinerary fit for the snake-chaser himself. (Part of the myth and story of St. Patrick was that he banished all of the snakes out of Ireland.) Use the list to help make your plans in the Lake Chelan Valley this March 17.
