Going Green: St. Patrick’s Day in Costa Mesa

Posted on March 15, 2013 | 11:03am

Each year the feast of St. Patrick, or St. Patrick’s Day, is celebrated on March 17.  Although the day celebrates Irish culture and history, the first St. Patrick’s Day celebration did not occur in Ireland, but rather in Boston in 1737.  The color green is was not always associated with St. Patrick’s Day, originally blue was the color of the holiday, but was replaced with green in the 19th century.

Today, St. Patrick’s Day has become synonymous with the color green, images of shamrocks, leprechauns, corned beef and hash, whiskey and of course – beer.  If a visit to the Emerald Island isn’t in your travel plans this weekend, there are many great places and events to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Costa Mesa.
