Are you feeling lucky? Well, are you?

You should, as St. Patrick’s Day in Las Vegas is one of the best days to party. Between entertainers, green beer and food specials – you know you want some of that corned beef – you’ll have so many reasons to dress up and paint the Las Vegas Strip green.

The LINQ Promenade’s annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration, centered around O’Shea’s Casino and pub, returns starting Friday, March. 15.

Irish folk band Darby O’Gill will kick off the festive weekend at The LINQ Promenade’s fountain stage from 5 – 8 p.m. on Friday.

Bagpipers will take to The Promenade on Saturday and Sunday mornings, stopping in at venues, like Virgil’s Real BBQ, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery, Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar, Off the Strip, O’Shea’s and Flour and Barley – Brick Oven Pizza. Empire Records will play the fountain stage from 6 – 9 p.m. on Saturday.

The grand finale, the St. Patrick’s Day parade will roll through The LINQ Promenade Sunday at noon. Featuring drummers, bagpipers, celebrity guests, stilt walkers and Irish dancers, the parade will end at O’Sheas Casino where Mr. Lucky, the leprechaun, will give the official toast.

Strolling entertainers and drink specials continue through the evening which is crowned by lighting the High Roller,  the world’s tallest observation wheel, in green.

Newly opened Doughp, the San Francisco-based edible cookie dough shop is serving scoops of green cookie dough with an edible gold coin, priced at $8. This treat is only available from 10 a.m. to noon on March 17, so you’ll have to be an early bird.
