Walk, Waggle, and Stroll Dog Walk
Aw, who doesn’t want to spend a day celebrating with their favorite pooch? That’s exactly what you can do at Miami Lighthouse’s eighth annual dog parade. The theme is, of course, St. Patty’s Day, and the aim is to raise awareness for service animals. Your dog could win an award for best costume, most talented, or looking the most like its owner. The afternoon is full of fun for dogs and humans alike. The walk takes place from 9 a.m. until noon on Sunday, March 15. Registration is $30 for walkers, and the registration cost is waived for walkers who are visually impaired.
36th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival
If you want a great way to party with the family this holiday, make a move to Coral Gables. The family-friendly affair is an ode to everything green. It is perfect for adults and kids alike. You and the little ones can watch Irish dancers, listen to drums, eat a bit of soda bread, or make a few crafts. There will be vendors, a bounce house and more. Remember: Everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.
Celebrating on St. Patrick’s Day is a great time to be sure. How you choose to celebrate is entirely up to you. Whether you choose to celebrate with your partner, your pooch or your little one, your goal should be to have fun and stay safe.
