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. If you’re debating whether to embark on a local adventure or plan some crafty activities that you can conveniently participate in from your apartment rental, here’s a list of ideas to consider. 

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! Pets that are happy to wear green bandanas, rainbow sweaters, and leprechaun costumes will put your community in the holiday spirit.
