The vibrant blue waters of Hawaii take on an emerald green hue on this day and Aloha is replaced with Slainte! The menehune give way to the leprechauns. Guinness is the beer of choice and, if you’re lucky enough, you might find that four-leaf clover next to a pineapple. Here are a wide-range of celebrations taking place throughout the islands.
The south coast of Maui is home to this indoor/outdoor dining experience. On St. Pat’s day, doors will open at 11 a.m. for first-come, first-served dining highlighting food and drink specials for the day. Live music begins at noon and will play until the evening’s end.
If you’ve always dreamed of being Irish for a day, march in this parade. It all begins at Fort DeRussy, then merrymakers wind their way down Kalakaua Avenue to Kapi’olani Park. Join marching bands, military groups, community organizations, school children and whimsical floats, allegedly powered by leprechauns, as you make your way through Waikiki. It all lasts about 90 minutes, but the festivities continue in the Park with live music and food.
Named Best Bar with the Best Mixologist, as well as Best Late Night Food on the island, the festivities on St. Patrick’s Day are guaranteed to get you shamrocked. Known as a place to catch the luck of the Irish, the celebration features Irish beverages from Guinness to Bushmills shots to Gaelic lemonade and a sampling of Irish food favorites. Live music livens up the day. You might even hear some bagpipes at some point.
