Saturday, March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day. Always a day of fun, celebrants of the day tend to follow a few unspoken rules: wear green, listen to Celtic music, feast on corn beef & cabbage, and enjoy a wee drink or two. You’re sure to find St. Patrick’s Day events across Berks County, so don your green and get going. If you’re looking for a place to start, we pulled a few ideas from Pennsylvania’s Americana Region’s Calendar of Events to help with your St. Patrick’s Day fun. Have fun! (Please don’t drink and drive.)
