If saving big at dinner-time isn't enough of a celebration for you, here are the three biggest March 17th celebrations in America commemorating Irish heritage.
Chicago dyes their river green.
Nearly all month long, Chicago celebrates with pop-up Irish pubs, parades, 5ks, and clover hunts, but by far their biggest show of pride is when they dye the Chicago River green. Aiming for the title of "greenest city in the world," they light up city landmarks in green along with the Chicago River. For 40 years, they've been dyeing the river to honor the "Emerald Isle." It's completely safe, and they use 25 pounds of dye to make it last a full day. With HelloFresh's new promotion, you can save some serious green to put towards a visit to the big green river.
New York's Fifth Avenue Parade is the place to be.
Bagpipes, floats, marching bands, and green hats, sunglasses, and goofy sweaters can be found in the parade line-up in NYC and the crowds. The free annual St. Patrick's Day Parade features performers of all kinds, and when it's over, there's still pub crawls, face-painting, dances, and beer tastings all over the city. You know what else is free? 8 free dinners with HelloFresh's St Paddy's deal!
You can see the Dropkick Murphys or traditional Irish dance in Boston.
Boston is home to the complete spectrum of Irish festivities this St. Patrick's Day. The Dropkick Murphys are playing at the House of Blues, you can find Irish step-dancing and corned beef all over the city, and the Boston Celtics are playing all weekend, so there are plenty of opportunities to dress in head-to-toe green. You're bound to have worked up an appetite after all that dancing, come home to a homemade meal from HelloFresh, like a classic favorite and Boston signature, Fish and Chips with Tilapia, Dill Pickle Tartar Sauce, and Zucchini.
The Feast of St. Patrick is approaching and no matter how you're planning to have fun, don't forget to sign up for HelloFresh's sweeter-than-shortbread deal. Starting at $7.87 a meal, it's cheaper than takeout and with easy-to-follow instructions, you won't need the luck of the Irish to cook dinner for the whole family perfectly.
