Wearing green and going to the local Irish Pub isn’t the only way to celebrate St. Patrick’s day. Why crawl when you can skip the pub and drive somewhere fun? We have some great ideas for you to have an epic LA St. Patrick’s Day with your friends and family. From festive parades to plant-based restaurants and unique entertainment experiences, this might just be your most exciting St. Patrick’s Day yet –  and you won’t get there by crawling.

For those of you that enjoy being festive, go ahead, throw on some green and drive down to The Hermosa Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade, taking place one day before the actual holiday. This one-day event is full of St. Paddy’s Day themed bands, cars, pets, and bagpipers marching their way down the beautiful beach city streets. You’re bound to feel the Irish Spirit! Don’t forget to save some energy to go to Pershing Square in Downtown Los Angeles for The St. Patrick’s Day Fest where you can enjoy live music, Irish dancers, and cultural food.

Thinking of doing something a bit more casual? Check out the St. Patrick’s Day Comedy show hosted in the house where Comedy Central filmed the show Workaholics. You are guaranteed to have an experience that you will want to share with others. This event is also held the day before and you can continue your casual celebration on St. Patrick’s Day at one of our favorite Vegan restaurants in Los Angeles.  Crossroads on Melrose is perfect for a green St. Patrick’s Day meal that friends with any dietary preference would enjoy. After you have eaten organic, you may be inspired to buy organic and create your own plant-based dishes by driving to the Historic Downtown Farmers Market for fresh, affordable, local groceries and entertainment.

Regardless of where you decide to go or if you choose to be the designated driver, Midway Car Rental can get you there and help you continue to celebrate the holiday. Go green for St. Paddy’s Day by renting one of our hybrid or electric vehicles, and you can also keep some green in your pockets by taking advantage of one of our promotions!  Our Toyota Prius, Lexus RX450h, and Tesla Model X are all environmentally friendly, fun, stylish, and affordable. Contact us to learn more.
