Be Irish For a Day: March 17th-18th
Cross the Lake Erie ice this St. Patrick’s Day and have some pre-season fun at Put-in-Bay Ohio! Join the island locals for an Irish inspired day of partying. Wear your four-leaf clovers, grab your green goodies, and get ready to celebrate the Luck O’ The Irish with a pinch of island inspiration. Canada might be closest but on St. Patrick’s Day we are all Irish!
Did you know? Put-in-Bay actually has over 480 full-time residents! With that said, our tourist season starts April 1st. If you come in the off-season there is still plenty of perch and walleye ice fishing for everyone.
St. Patrick’s Day at The Bay Festivities
With the season not quite open, we are getting a head start on the partying on St. Patrick’s Day at the Bay. Make sure you know where to go for fun! Hooligans will be open for business and ready to host all you lucky ‘Irish’ patrons. Due to seasonal restrictions, they will only have their outdoor area, and you are encouraged to BYOB! Park Drive Thru is the perfect pit stop to grab your beverage of choice before the celebrations begin. Topsy Turvey’s and Reel Bar may be also open, contact them for more details.
Put-in-Bay Ohio has an airport that services smaller aircraft fleets. These aircraft can transport 1 – 15 people depending on what is available. You can also reach the island by airboat. These fun air/water crafts quickly glide you and your crew across the water and the ice. However highly discouraged, some folks drive four-wheelers across the ice when the ice is stable and the conditions are right.
There is also a small variety of hotels and homes available for rent during this traditional holiday. Check rates online or contact 216-898-9951 for details.
Come Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at Put-in-Bay Ohio! You’re going to pinch yourself if you miss out on this fun!
