Dance a jig, hunt for a pot of gold, discover the pleasures of Irish music and yes…spray your hair green. These are just some of your options for a fun, and hopefully lucky, St Patrick's Day celebration in Suffolk.
In A Children's Program of Irish Dancers at Walt Whitman Birthplace, students from the Mulvihill-Lynch Studio kick up their heels and perform a kid-friendly show, then teach audience members about the history behind the dance and costumes.
Go on a St. Patrick's Day Scavenger Hunt and search for gold at the end of the rainbow at Suffolk County Farm.
Darlings & Divas invites you to get in the holiday spirit by sporting lime-colored locks at St. Patrick’s Day: Spray Your Hair Green. FREE!
Celebrate traditional Irish culture and music with Darlene Graham and the Shades of Green Band when they stop by the Long Island Children’s Museum.
Get to know the Irish pirates who ruled the seas, learn the meaning of the Jolly Roger flag, and design your own pirate flag in an Irish-American Heritage Workshop at the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum.
