Things are greening up on the North Bank, and it’s nearly time for the ‘Couve’s biggest celebration of all things verdant during St. Paddy’s for Parks, the annual 21-and-over St. Patrick’s Day party at Shorty’s Garden & Home starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 13. (Lucky 13!) Enjoy Irish food, music and festivities in a heated indoor space. Tap your toes to music from 5 Guys Named Moe, Vancouver Firefighters Pipes and Drums, and Molly Malone Dancers. Proceeds from the evening are 100% green, benefitting the Parks Foundation in its mission to support the parks, trails, and recreation programs of Clark County.
Advance tickets are $25 per person or $30 at the door, and include one complimentary drink. Tickets are available through Ticket Tomato. Tables can be reserved for $100 by calling 360-487-8370 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Shorty’s on Mill Plain is located at 10006 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd. in Vancouver.
But wait, there’s more! Come back to Shorty’s from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, for St. Paddy’s for Kids: a completely free event that’s just for kids. You and your wee ones will enjoy green-themed stories, arts and crafts, hands-on nature activities and more.
