Even if there’s not a blade of green grass in sight just yet, local revelers are sure to don the color in full force this St. Paddy’s weekend. The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick’s parade is an annual highlight, and spectators can expect to see lots of local nonprofits and schools walking the streets in festive Irish-inspired regalia, alongside local political groups, elected officials and businesses. For other local St. Patrick’s events happening the same day, consider the Irish Drinking Team’s 14th annual pub crawl across downtown Spokane. The Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture is also hosting a Friday evening celebration of all things Irish; visit each of those groups’ websites for details.
