Sights for St. Patrick’s Day in Omaha Nebraska

St. Patrick’s Day is a special holiday in Omaha. It is a day on which people of all origins take part in intercultural engagement – namely the happiness of the Irish.

With COVID-19 raging for a year now, it’s no surprise that the green holiday celebrations are a little tight. Even so, knowing where to look is still fun. And luckily for you, dear reader, this list is a great place to start.

Are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day?

The DAV South Omaha’s first annual Wear’n of the Green party is taking place this year, and it’s going to be a great time. Open to the public and free of charge, you can’t go wrong by having fun while supporting an honorable institution.

There are drink specials and raffles to celebrate – not to mention the malarkey that will naturally arise among such fine people. There’s also corned beef and cabbage for lunch while supplies last, so come early and hungry.

Ultimately, if you are in the mood to support an agency that does everything in their power to support veterans, you’ve come to the right place. Because it’s not only dutiful, it’s going to be an exciting time.
