The Best Columbus St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations To Get Your Irish On

Slainte and Erin Go Bragh: It’s time to celebrate all things Irish.

St. Patrick’s Day may be a little loud and it may be a little messy, but it’s my absolute favorite. Everyone is smiling, the dulcet tones of bagpipes fill the air, and we get to drink beer before lunchtime and no one cares! What’s not to love?
