One of our favourite holiday celebrations is just around the corner! This year, St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Friday which means you can fully experience the joys of the holiday without worrying about work the next day! We’ve rounded up a list of the best events in Vancouver happening all week long because, let’s be real, we know St. Patrick’s doesn’t last for just one day. There’s a party for everyone from diehard St.Paddy’s lovers, to families and for those who are underage. Grab your leprechaun hats and shamrock beads out and get ready to party.
