The 2nd Closest Thing to St. Patrick’s Day September 19th!
St. Patrick’s Day is a beloved party day all over America. Don’t you wish it came more than once a year? Well at Put-in-Bay Ohio it does! Join us the third weekend of September for Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day! There is a parade with a marching band and bagpipes, everyone dresses in green, it’s just like the original St. Patrick’s day in March, just spreading the love to September! Hooligans Irish Pub sponsors the parade and is also the headquarters for the St. Patrick’s Day festivities! Hooligans is the place to be for food and drinks, and a big chunk of the faux St. Patty’s fun. Other bars and restaurants will get in on the fun too!
Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day
Once the Halfway to St. Patrick’s day festivities are complete, and you’ve had your fill of corned beef and whiskey, enjoy the rest of what Put-in-Bay has to offer. Hop onto the Tour Train and relax while you see a lot of what’s going on on the island. The tour, approximately one hour in length, gives you a taste of all of the major Put-in-Bay attractions. Stop by the Downtown Bus terminal at the corner of Delaware and Toledo to pick up a ticket. You’ll be riding in a eye-popping yellow open air trolley tugged along by a Jeep. You’ll get the scoop about the main Put-in-Bay attractions from your knowledgeable tour guide, both entertaining and informative! You’ll both enjoy the tour and have an idea what sites you’ll want to check out in a little more detail later on during your stay. Some of the stops include:
- Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial
- Perry’s Cave Family Fun Center
- Heineman’s Winery
- Lake Erie Island Nature and Wildlife Center
There’s nowhere else we know of where you can squeeze in a second St. Patrick’s Day, so make a trip out to Put-in-Bay Ohio decked out in green and orange and have a great time!
