What to Do on St. Patrick's Day in Lexington, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! For residents in the Lexington, KY area, there are plenty of fun activities the entire family can enjoy.

4 Family-Friendly St. Patrick’s Day Activities Perfect for Lexington Residents

1. St. Patrick’s Parade & Festival

For the last 40 years, downtown Lexington has hosted an exciting St. Patrick’s Day parade and festival. At the longest-running civic event in the city, you'll enjoy live music, dancing, and tasty food right in your own backyard.

2. Holiday-Inspired Baking

While your family may not be old enough to enjoy a green beer on St. Patrick’s Day, there is a myriad of snacks and baked goods to indulge in. Using green food coloring, you can make green velvet cupcakes or shamrock sugar cookies. As a healthy alternative, kick off the day with green smoothies packed with spinach, kale, and apples and bananas for sweetness. For dinner, serve zucchini noodles and a pesto sauce with a side of Irish soda bread. 

3. Shamrock & Leprechaun Crafts

Before venturing out to the parade, create a few holiday craft projects for your little ones to enjoy. Make leprechauns out of paper plates, construction paper, and paint. Use watercolors to draw rainbows with a pot of gold or make magical shamrock wands using paper, chopsticks, and ribbon. 

4. Pet Fashion Show

ApartmentIf you live in a pet-friendly apartment complex, gather your neighbors and fellow pet owners in a communal area for a holiday-inspired fashion show or group walk!
