St. Patrick's Day Parade. Pretty self explanatory, but who doesn't love a good parade?! The parade will include Irish bands, pipers, dancers, and 2,000 marchers going north on 4th Ave from James Street to Westlake Park!

Bourbon & Bacon Fest. Umm, SIGN US UP. Sip on some bourbon and eat some bacon treats at the Seattle Design Center! Bacon and booze is definitely high up on the list of things that we love. There are two "sessions." The first, for the day drinkers out there starting at noon and ending at 4pm. The second session is for the night owls - 5:30pm-9:30pm.

St. Patrick's Day Dash. Put ya green on or sport a costume for the St. Patrick's Day 5K! The run starts at the Seattle Center to downtown and back. After ya burn those cals, there will be a "giant beer garden." Very intrigued, indeed. Remember, you have to register before you go! They also have cute St. Patty's Day swag for you to choose from. If the beer garden isn't enough of a pull...the sweatshirts, people.
305 Harrison St
Dance Theatre of Harlem. The Paramount Theatre is hosting the legendary "Dance Theatre of Harlem." This dance company consists of 14 racially diverse dance artists who absolutely SLAY. I saw this group a few years ago and it was breathtaking. If you love the arts and dance, this will feed your soul.
