10 Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Bastrop County - 2016

St. Patrick's Day commemorates Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. On St Patrick's Day, it's customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories, because Saint Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leafed green plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish. Hundreds of years later, St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival!

Here in Bastrop County, there are lots of ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, from shamrock cookies and cupcakes to corned beef & cabbage to green beer and more. Whatever you do, be sure to wear green, or you'll have a good chance of getting pinched!
