Leaping Leprechauns! It’s the Blarney Bash on the Georgia Street Boardwalk

Leaping leprechauns! It’s that time of year again when pints of green beer are suddenly in popular demand, at least for a day. And that can only mean one thing: It’s time to channel your inner Irishman and get ready for one heck of a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

The “Blarney Bash” takes place this Saturday, March 16, from noon to midnight on the Georgia Street Boardwalk in downtown Indianapolis.

Needless to say, it wouldn’t be a true Irish celebration without beer, and green beer at that! Fortunately, the Blarney Bash is presented by Killian’s, a name practically synonymous with Irish beer. Guests 21 and over can enjoy a green pint of beer from any of several beer tents that will be situated along the boardwalk. These same beer tents will also be open on Friday from 3 – 10 p.m. when the Pacers take on the Lakers.

Several downtown Indianapolis bars and restaurants will participate in the event, including Howl at the Moon, Killroy’s Bar N’ Grill, Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery and The Pub Indianapolis.

There will also be live entertainment. A live DJ will mix some tracks from noon – 2 p.m., 5 – 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. – midnight. My Yellow Rickshaw, originally from Portland, Indiana, is a local cover band that plays a nice mix of 80s, 90s and contemporary hits, including those by such diverse artists Miley Cyrus, Dave Matthews Band, John Mellencamp, Sublime, Michael Jackson and Coldplay to name just a few. They will perform from 2 – 5 p.m. Finally, Flatbed Twitch is another local, 4-piece band that combines country, soul, gospel and rock ‘n’ roll styles to form a very unique sound. They will perform from 7 – 10 p.m.
