Murphy's Lagh
St. Patrick's Day is almost here! It's time to go green, get jiggy and wish your loved ones good cheer and good luck.  Looking for some holiday fun? We have lots of things for you to do!

St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time -- a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic. 

1. St. Patrick's Day Dinner, Pender Harbour 
What better way to pay tribute to this Irish holiday then by indulging in a fabulous roast beef dinner complete with dessert at the Pender Harbour Legion.  Afterwards, enjoy the sounds of the fabulous fiddlers of Murphys Lagh — Damian, Shamma and Juno winner Moritz Behm.  All for $25 - Doors Open 5:30 - Wear Green - prizes may happen!

2. The Big Indoor Market, Sechelt 
Let the "Luck O the Irish" shine upon you at The Big Indoor Market at the Sechelt Legion.  You'll find a wide variety of wares from local artisans that make it, bake it, create it & grow it!  9:30am to 2pm

3. St. Patrick’s Day Fun – Go Green, Gibsons 
It's a bit o' the Irish.  Where ‘something’ green and bring your own tea cup to the Gibsons Public Library for an afternoon of good cheer.  Sit and sip a nice cup of Irish Tea while the Coast String Fiddlers and Sunshine Coast Arbutus Sounds Chorus serenade you.   1pm to 3pm  

4. McKinney’s Pub, Powell River
The McKinney’s Pub, located in the Rodmay Heritage Hotel, will have more than just green beer on St. Patrick’s Day.  Dress up in your best Irish attire, and head out for loads of fun, little green men and drink specials. 

5. St. Patrick's Night Irish Kitchen Party, Gibsons
If a St. Patty's Day dance party is what you seek, check out Kinsmen Hall in Dougall Park in Gibsons.  Enjoy an evening of Irish fun, jigs, reels and sing-alongs. Doors open at 7 p.m. with entertainment starting at 7:30. Tickets are $12, available from Laedeli in Sunnycrest Mall and Gaia’s Fair Trade, or reserve tickets by calling 604-989-3858.
