Enjoy Some Crafting o’ the Green

On St. Patrick’s Day, most of us have corned beef and cabbage on our minds. But Shamrocks and lucky 4-leaf clovers may come to mind, too. Shamrocks are, of course, native to Ireland, not Missouri. But this event about native Missouri plants offers fun for you and your whole family.

Have a Rolla-cking Good Time on St. Paddy’s

Talk about a time-honored tradition! This unique St. Paddy’s Day celebration dates all the way back to 1908. Over the course of its 114 years, it has only grown bigger and better, with the leadup time starting in fall of the prior year.

The riverboat Shamrock fired a salvo inviting everyone in St. Louis to the very first St. Patrick's Day celebration and parade in St. Louis and possibly the first in Missouri. Now they're wearin' the green in St. Louis, Kansas City, Rolla, Saint Patrick, New Haven, Shamrock, and of course in our Irish Wilderness.
