We’re attending the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Easton, Maryland. It’s a fun event, takes place ‘after school’ in lovely downtown Easton, Maryland right on St. Patrick’s Day, and everything’s free! The kids have a blast with the crafts, games and activities- and they love to watch the decorated golf cart contest and other fun floats in the parade down the main street. It’s great family fun- we hope to see you there!
