Here are our top 5 St. Patrick’s Day in Boise activities:

Ha’Penny Bridge Pub

Ha’Penny is an Irish pub located on Broad Street across from PF Changs. This cozy spot will have a variety of Irish flavors and green cocktails available during St. Patty’s Day. We recommend trying one of their specialty green drinks with their popular Guinness burger. Ha’Penny is an excellent place to meet your friends for a fun night out.

YMCA Fun Run

St. Patrick’s Day isn’t just about food and drinks. Our final suggestion for St. Patty’s Day celebrations is the YMCA fun run at Julia Davis Park. Grab your green tights and join runners for healthy, family-friendly fun. The one-mile Leprechaun loop starts at 9:30 am and the 5K & 5Mile runs start at 10 am.

This is a great way to jump-start your Saturday morning and proceeds will benefit the YMCA Team Idaho Track and Cross Country club.
