Virginia limousine service
Whether you are donning your greenest get-up ready to party the night away or just want to find some fun activities to celebrate with the whole family, there is something going on in Virginia this Patty’s Day that’s sure to get you in the Irish spirit.
Wherever your celebrations might take you, make sure your travel needs are taken care of with our reliable Virginia car service. The last thing you want to be worrying about is battling traffic and finding parking spots, or trying to find a designated driver for one of the busiest party nights of the year! We have a wide range of vehicles to suit your needs, including luxurious SUVs for the whole family, classic sedans for a night out on the town, or even limo buses that make your journey with your group as much fun as the destination!
If you are in the mood for something more active (at least before the Guinness drinking begins in earnest!), head down to the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon Weekend held at Virginia Beach. This is a whole Patty’s weekend worth of fun for the whole family, where more practiced members can take part in the marathon, half marathon, or 8k race distances, but there is also a Final Mile for elementary age kids, and a 26.2 yard Leprechaun Dash for the littlest ones in the family. There’s also a full Sports and Fitness Expo across the weekend, and you can enjoy a post-race party after each race day filled with plenty of live music, Yuengling beers, and traditional Irish Stew to feast on after your efforts.
It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without a parade, so head down to Fredericksburg for the 16th Annual Jeff Fitzpatrick St. Patrick’s Day Parade and get ready to celebrate! The parade itself starts at noon and will feature marching bands, fire trucks, Irish dancers, horses, and local pageant winners amongst much more. Stick around after the parade is done and join in the festivities with a special St. Patrick’s Day Festival hosted by A. Smith Bowman Brewery at the end of the parade route. There will be live music and entertainment, family-friendly activities, a great selection of food from local food trucks, and plenty of beer – naturally!
If you want to raise a glass to St. Patty but sipping on stout isn’t your idea of a good time, why not check out some of the alternative St. Patrick’s Day events going on across the area too. The Virginia Distillery Company in Lovingston will be hosting a Shamrock Shenanigans Whiskey Party from 11 am to 6 pm, complete with live music and food trucks, or check out the Irish Whiskey Pairing Dinner at Cooking Studio in Middleburg where their top chef will prepare an Irish feast to enjoy with perfectly matched whiskey flights. If wine is more your thing, check out the special events going on at many top wineries across the region – Peaks of Otter Winery in Bedford, Magnolia Vineyards in Amissville, Veramar Vineyard in Berryville, and Homeplace Vineyard in Chatham all have plenty going on to mark St. Patty’s weekend.
