One of the best things about taking a March vacation to Pigeon Forge is the opportunity to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your friends and family members! You don’t even need to be in town on the actual holiday because you can enjoy a variety of fun activities all month long! Here are the top 3 ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day while staying at our cabins in Pigeon Forge TN:
1. Attend the Irish Celebration at the Titanic Pigeon Forge
One of the best ways to celebrate Patrick’s Day while staying at our cabins in Pigeon Forge TN is to attend the annual Irish Celebration at the Titanic Pigeon Forge! This popular event runs throughout the entire month of March and brings out the Irish in everyone who steps aboard! The Titanic was built in Belfast in Northern Ireland, so this is a special opportunity to pay tribute to the Irish workers who worked on the ship’s construction and the 159 Irish passengers and crew who sailed on its fateful voyage. Of course, you can also visit the Titanic Museum at any time of year for a self-guided tour featuring over 400 artifacts directly from the ship and its passengers.
2. Prepare a Traditional Irish Dinner in Your Cabin
One of the many perks of staying in the cabins at Eagles Ridge is the ability to prepare meals in a fully equipped kitchen! Therefore, you can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by preparing a traditional Irish dinner with soda bread, Irish stew, shepherd’s pie or corned beef and cabbage! Our kitchens have virtually every amenity imaginable for easy meal preparation, so you simply need to pick up the groceries from one of the local stores in Pigeon Forge such as Kroger, Publix or Food City. If you are staying in one of our cabins with wireless internet, you can even download some Irish music to add to the atmosphere! As an alternative, you could always bring out your inner leprechaun and belt out a few Irish tunes of your own!
3. Search for Four Leaf Clovers in the National Park
Another great way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day while staying at our cabins in Pigeon Forge TN is to search for four leaf clovers in Great Smoky Mountains National Park! While commonly confused with a shamrock, a shamrock is actually a clover with three leaves that are said to stand for faith, hope and love. The shamrock has also been an iconic symbol of Irish heritage and culture for thousands of years. However, the rare four-leafed clover is considered the “lucky clover” as the fourth leaf stands as a symbol for good luck. In fact, four leaf clovers were even used as a charm against evil spirits by the early Celts! Keep your eyes open while exploring the national park as you never know when you might experience the luck of the Irish!
