A Patch roundup of interesting St. Patrick's Day activities and considerations was published Thursday: Get Your Irish Up With These St. Paddy's Day Events
Saint Patrick's Day celebrates Saint Patrick (386-493), the patron saint of Ireland. It is the national holiday of Ireland and celebrated worldwide by Irish people and those honoring the traditions and "luck of the Irish" by wearing green, drinking beer, celebrating with parades.
Following are a couple more fun, green-themed things to do locally.
Burger King in Eureka is giving away free fries with one-of-a-kind green Heinz dipping sauce this Saturday and Sunday. No purchase is necessary to receive the fries, but the sauce will be available only while supplies last. It's one fry (value size)/green sauce container per customer.
While cruising through fast food lanes this weekend, don't forget 'tis the season for "limited time only" green mint shamrock shakes at McDonald's restaurants.
