St. Patrick’s Day festivities coming to downtown

CLAREMORE — Dust off your kilts and green clothing. St. Patrick’s Day is days away, and downtown Claremore is ready to celebrate.

The fun St. Patty’s Party will be 6-9 p.m. Friday with the Bangers & Mash Lunch set to feed the festive Monday on St. Patrick’s Day.

The St. Patty’s Party returns to Will Rogers Boulevard for another year with Irish food and beverages, Celtic music, and dancing. Vintage Wildflowers, Hells Fringe Board Band, and Timothy O’Brian’s Celtic Cheer will grace downtown with music, while Goode Academy of Irish Dance shares their creative footwork for all to see.

This party doesn’t stop there. Downtown shops are encouraged to remain open throughout the St. Patty’s Party for your convenience and chance to be the winner of our Pot-o-Gold Giveaway.

Now through the end of the party, residents can enter to win at any of our participating downtown merchants.

Whoever wins will receive over $300 in shopping dollars. The drawing will be 1 p.m.on Monday, following Bangers & Mash.

St. Patrick’s Day will mark a feast fit for any Irishman in downtown Claremore.

Bangers & Mash, the annual lunch of Irish sausage and mashed potatoes, will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of Claremore Daily Progress.

Music from Timothy O’Brian’s Celtic Cheer and Whisky Rebellion will accompany this feast.

This traditional Irish meal, including a drink and dessert, will be available for purchase at an affordable $6.

Lunch activities will end with the traditional sidewalk parade.

Claremore Main Street will also be selling commemorative T-shirts for $10 each. Purchasing a T-shirt will get you $1 off your Bangers & Mash lunch this year and at future Bangers & Mash lunches.
