    I thought that when the 17th actually fell on a weekend then the events were that weekend, otherwise they were the weekend before the 17th.

    Just depends on when St. Patty's day falls. And since the 17th falls on a Saturday this year, it wouldn't make any sense to have the festivities the weekend before. With the holiday being on a Saturday, and all of the activities going on the same day, it's going to be wild in OC this year, so be prepared!

    There are a few things going on if you check the OC website, parade, etc., but the big event is Shenanigan's 5K run, followed by a pretty crazy party:

    I posted this in another thread, but I had big plans to head out to our condo for that week, get things going for the season, and attend the fun at Shenanigan's.

    Of course, with perfect timing, my daughter's spring musical is that weekend. She has the lead and no way I want to miss that. So I suppose I'll plan on next year.

    If you go, have a green beer for me!!

    It is the 17th this year. If St. Patricks Day does not fall on Saturday it is the Saturday before. Crazy weekend. Parade goes from about 60th Street south to 45th Street plaza. Any bar along this route is packed.....especially Seacrets.
