luck o’ the irish – celebrations in new england

I love holidays. I love the decorations, the food, any excuse to dress up, and the general merriment the holidays bring. My family is Irish so St. Patrick’s Day has always been one of my favorites. My mom also makes this incredible Potato Soup that I would eat every single day if she’d make it! It’s really that good.

Most towns probably have some sort of celebration happening for St. Patrick’s Day but I’ve complied a list of suggestions for the New England states in case you’re up for a last minute holiday getaway! Or you could take a road trip and hit a few of these events!
