St.Patrick’s Day is the day that we pay tribute to the Irish culture. We attend festivals and parades, learn to dance and drink Irish beers. But St.Patrick’s Day in Tulsa is so much more than green beer and leprechauns. In Tulsa, we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day to honor the Irish Culture in a way that’s fun for everyone.
