Bangers and Mash: Luncheon kicks off daylong St. Patrick’s Day celebrations

CLAREMORE — St. Patrick’s Day will be a two-part celebration in  Claremore this year, with an Irish-themed luncheon during the day and a party in the heart of downtown after dark.

Returning favorite, the “Bangers and Mash Lunch” will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Claremore Daily Progress next Friday.
“This will be our 5th annual St. Paddy’s Party in downtown Claremore: Bangers and Mash Lunch,” said Cindy Bissett, Claremore Main Street. “In celebration of the official day of green and Celtic tradition the Downtown Claremore community will be hosting our traditional bangers (sausage) and mash (potatoes) lunch for $6 per plate, and only $5 a plate with the purchase of a ‘Yeah. I Kissed It’ t-Shirt.”
Returning to provide entertainment for this year’s event will be fan-favorites Timothy O’Brian’s Celtic Cheer, and the Claremore Junior High Jazz Band.
Scheduled activities for the day also include Pot-O-Gold giveaways, a Blarney Stone for kissing for good luck, and an organized sidewalk stroll throughout historic downtown Claremore. 
To be eligible in the Pot-O-Gold giveaways, participants must register with participating businesses in downtown Claremore, all of which are being encouraged to offer special sales promotions in conjunction with the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day party.
But the fun doesn’t end there.
“That evening, Claremore Main Street will be hosting ‘Night Party on Main Street’— sort of an after-hours celebration of St. Patrick’s Day — in downtown Claremore,” Bissett said. 
Planned for 6-9 p.m. the “St. Paddy’s Party in Downtown Claremore: Night Party on Main Street” will feature a night of fun for the entire family, with the heart of Claremore to be dedicated to Celtic traditions and the official day of the color green.
This free-to-attend event will again feature Timothy O'Brian's Celtic Cheer, with musical performances from Shake Shake and GOT2B.
