I'm sure you've all heard the saying "the grass is greener on the other side," right? Well, when St. Patrick's Day comes around, the grass is greener where you make it green and Farragut has the luck of the Irish on their side for this holiday.
Looking for an early event to get you in the spirit? On March 2, Kiwanis and the Town of Farragut are hosting the Shamrock Ball. For the past 14 years, the Shamrock Ball, a father-daughter dance, has been a Farragut favorite and gives families the chance to enjoy music and dancing, craft making, and light refreshments. If that doesn't get you excited enough, the proceeds go to the Wesley House and Kiwanis Fresh Air Camp. I don't know about you, but I'm green with excitement over this event.
Shamrock Ball got you excited for the holiday and now you're making plans for St. Patrick's Day. First, you've got to have the right outfit. We all know what happens when you're not wearing green and no one wants that. To find the perfect outfit for March 17, stop by K Town Specialty Shop! Maybe green just isn’t your color, but you want to look like a pot of gold. Check out International Flair Jewelers for a one-of-a-kind coin necklace or bracelet.
