Top 5 Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Branson
In Branson, these St. Patrick's Day activities are better than a pot of gold (well, close!)
Even though St Patrick's Day originated Ireland long ago, it was actually Irish immigrants in the U.S. who made the holiday into what we know it as today. Many of the traditions were developed here, including St. Patrick's Day parades, corned beef, and probably green beer. Get ready to be even more surprised: originally, blue was the color associated with St. Patrick! But, before you worry that you've got it all wrong, take comfort in knowing that Ireland has embraced some of these traditions as well.
So, let's continue to celebrate! Here's our list of the top 6 ways to spend St. Patrick's Day in Branson.
1. Join the Hooley and Have a Lucky Pint at Waxy O'Shea's Irish Pub
Waxy O’Shea’s teleports you straight to Dublin with its authentic Irish atmosphere. Waxy O’Shea’s offers the most variety of draft beers in town, including the Lucky Pint that will fill you with all the holiday feels. Join their special event on March 17th, St. Patty's Day Hooley!
What is a hooley? A hooley involves festivities centered around dancing, singing, and a general merriment in the traditional Irish fashion. Some say the very soul of Ireland is expressed most perfectly in this way.
