St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, which means it’s time to sport your greenest outfit, blast some Irish tunes and drink like no one’s watching. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus prevention and containment measures, there are notably less events happening this year compared to 2019. That said, there are still a few celebrations happening around town for you to partake in… Below, we round up the St. Patrick’s Day events happening in the city.
