Half Way to St-Patricks Day – Put-in-Bay Celebrates The Irish Holiday!

While St. Patricks Day is a beloved party day all over America, Half Way to St-Patricks Day lets you celebrate it a second time each year! Each Summer season on the third weekend in September the Irish garb and green beer reappears for a weekend of fun and frivolity. It is much like to March version but warmer, and surrounded by thousands of fellow Irish for the day!

Half Way to St-Patricks Day Beings At Hooligans!

Hooligans Irish Pub takes the lead on the weekend of the Irish!  There is a parade with Bag Pipers, marching band, and everyone dresses in green, it’s just like the original St. Patricks day in March, just spreading the fun to September! Decorate your Put-in-Bay Golf Cart and join in the parade through town!  The big parade is sponsored by Hooligans Irish Pub and is also headquarters for the St. Patricks Day festivities! You will enjoy great authentic Irish food and of course a beer or two at the downtown location. Other Put-in-Bay Restaurants will be participating as well!

More Fun Things To Do At Put-in-Bay

Once you’ve had your fill of corned beef and whiskey, the Halfway to St. Patricks day festivities is just the start of the fun. Enjoy the rest of what Put-in-Bay has to offer. Jump aboard the Put-in-Bay Tour Train and relax while you tour the island. Each tour is approximately one hour in length and introduces you to almost all of the major Put-in-Bay attractions. The Downtown Bus terminal at the corner of Delaware and Toledo is the start of the tour and where you purchase a ticket to board.

You’ll be riding in an open-air trolley with a knowledgeable tour guide. A sound system makes it easy to hear the narrated informative tour. You’ll enjoy the tour and have a better idea of what sites you’ll want to check out in a little more detail later during your stay. A few of the stops include:

  • Lake Erie Island Nature and Wildlife Center
  • Heineman’s Winery
  • Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial
  • Perry’s Cave Family Fun Center

We don’t know of any other place you can celebrate Half Way to St-Patricks Day and even if we did we can almost bet it would not be as fun as Put-in-Bay!
