Haileo Deadwood Fans! The luck of the Irish is going to be in Historic Deadwood on March 17 & 19. It is time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with parades and a pub crawl. On Thursday Deadwood will kick-off St. Paddy’s day with its annual parade. Open container will be allowed between the hours of 5-10 pm. Remember to wear your green or else you will get pinched.

Saturday will be full of Irish fun! Pub Crawl and Poker Run Registration will start at 11 am at the Franklin Hotel. People can walk the streets with their green beer starting at noon and going until 10 pm. The Pub Crawl will start 2 pm and the locations are Franklin Hotel, Saloon # 10, Buffalo, Mustang Sally’s, Oyster Bay, Deadwood Tobacco, Elk’s Club, Miss Kitty’s Cantina, Wild Bill Bar and Seth’s Cellar. The Poker Run starts at 2 pm as well with Silverado, Gold Dust, Deadwood Gift Shoppe, Celebrity Hotel, Belle Joli, and Four Aces as the locations. There will be another St. Patrick’s Day parade running up the Historic Deadwood Main Street starting at 7 pm. The Final Location Party for the Pub Crawl will start at 8 pm at the Franklin Hotel.

If you can’t find anything green to wear on St. Paddy’s day the Silverado and ME (Deadwood Chamber of Commerce) are selling shirts. The shirts are of course green and say Top Five things I learned on St. Patrick’s Day in Deadwood. To learn what the shirts say they are $12 each. The shirts are benefitting the new Northern Hills Alliance daycare center here in Deadwood.

If you are hungry for some good Irish stew the Deadwood VFW will be hosting an Irish stew, bake sale, and silent auction on Thursday from 4:30-6:30 pm. Tickets for the Irish stew and Biscuit Dinner are $5 per person and all proceeds will go to local community projects.

Everyone is Irish here for the Deadwood St. Patrick’s Day Celebration!
