St. Patrick’s Day or “The Feast of St. Patrick’s day” is coming up soon! This cultural and religious day is an Irish tradition (as we all know), but did you know that St. Patrick’s day is on St. Patrick’s death date and that he is the most commonly recognized patron St. of Ireland? This date was made by the Christian church in the early 17th century, and through generations now is celebrated worldwide.

Taking a trip to the mountains on your favorite Breckenridge Airport Shuttle from Peak 1 Express provides a wonderful getaway for all ages.There is so much to do between skiing, snowboarding and not to mention witnessing the most amazing views in the country! If you missed how fun the holidays are in the mountains, don’t fret St. Patty’s day is coming up very soon! There are a bunch of great things to do in the mountains for St Patty’s day and here are a couple from your favorite mountain shuttle company to try out!

Burke & Riley’s in Breckenridge is the first place to visit in Summit County on St. Patty’s day! Burke and Rileys is an Irish pub where it’s St. Patty’s day everyday. However, on the actual holiday they offer up green beer, delicious corn beef and cabbage and a great place to start your St. Patty’s Day festivities.

Another option for celebrating if you are heading over to Vail, make sure to check out Shakedown Street performing at the Samana Lounge. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the acoustic set will start at 9 p.m. For just $15.00 you can dance away your St. Patty’s Day!

Those are just two high country options for ways to celebrate! Whatever you do this St. Patricks day, just remember to have fun! Put on your “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” shirt, grab your four leaf clovers, watch some live Irish music and set yourself set up for a great time!
