St. Patrick’s Day! It’s the one day in the year when you can wear that glow-in-the-dark green wig or your Cat-in-the-Hat striped hat and not feel out of place. The one day when eating and drinking things that are green isn’t a bad thing. It’s usually a day for wonderful events like parades with marching bands, those crazy Shriners, and cool Clydesdales. Things will still be a little strange this year, but you can enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day vacation here in one of our beautiful rentals in Oregon.

Local St. Patrick’s Celebrations
Local bars and brewpubs will still be featuring St. Patrick’s Day-themed fun, although things may be downsized again this year. You can still get your fill of Irish stew, corned beef and cabbage, green beer, and Irish music. Before you head out to the local Irish pub, just check their social media for any restrictions, and don’t forget to wear your best green mask!
Be Green and Safe in Your Rental
It’s time for another small St. Patrick’s gathering, and your rental in Oregon is just the place. The wide-open floor plan means plenty of room for everyone to spread out, but still, keep in contact, and it’s easy to see the large flat screen from anywhere. Plus, there’s plenty of room to try your hand (or feet) at Irish step dancing. There are plenty of videos online to watch. This could be the start of a new tradition – a friendly little step dancing contest.
Missing those Clydesdales and bagpipers? Watch an old St. Patty’s Day parade and get your fill. In fact, it may be even better than watching the parade live, ‘cause you can fast forward past all the boring bits, or hit pause when it’s time for a refill.
Eat and Drink Green
Make use of your rental’s fully equipped kitchen and get cooking something Irish, or at least green. Start the day out with a “full Irish,” that’s easy. Then try your hand at making Irish soda bread or scones, or bake some shamrock-shaped sugar cookies for the kids to decorate. And, if the scones aren’t turning out quite right, just add green food coloring!
Stock up beforehand on Guinness, local craft beer (you can add the green food coloring), and Bailey’s and Cream. A few Irish coffees should help with the step dancing moves.
