Four Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Silver Spring

March 9, 2017

The residents of ROSS’ Silver Spring apartments can tune into the luck of the Irish with these St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.

Whether you’re of Irish decent or just Irish at heart, there’s plenty of ways to celebrate Ireland’s lively culture on and around St. Patrick’s Day. The residents of ROSS’ Silver Spring, Maryland apartments can join in on the food, fun and festivities with one of these ideas.

 

Enjoy Authentic Irish Food

Stop by Silver Spring’s own Irish pub and restaurant, McGinty’s Public House in Downtown Silver Spring. Treat yourself to bangers and mash for an Irish breakfast or just order classic pub fare with a Guinness Stout and imagine you’re having a regular meal in Dublin.

 

Go to a Parade

Just because Downtown Silver Spring isn’t hosting a parade doesn’t mean you’re out of luck! Hop on the nearby Silver Spring Metro for a quick trip downtown and catch the 46th Annual St. Patrick’s Parade of Washington, D.C.. It takes place on Sunday, March 12, at 12 p.m. and proceeds down Constitution Avenue.

 

Spend a Day at ShamrockFest

Embrace your inner Irish at “America’s largest St. Paddy’s Day festival,” taking place at RFK Stadium on Saturday, March 11, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be live music, food, drinks, craft vendors, carnival rides, games and more. Best of all, it’s family friendly and children under 12 get in for free!

 

Host a St. Patrick’s Day Party

If you don’t feel like going out to celebrate, you can always gather your family and friends in your spacious Silver Spring apartment for a fun time! It’s one of the easier holidays to decorate for. Just gather any and everything that’s green and stock up on a favorite Irish drink (Guinness Stout or Bailey’s Irish Cream) to get everyone in the spirit.

 

Now that you know how to celebrate the Irish way, head to a community whose convenient location and stunning features will give you a reason to celebrate every day. Stop by ROSS’ Silver Spring, Maryland apartments for a tour today!
