It’s that time of year again. Time to don the green attire and celebrate the luck of the Irish. To celebrate, you can go in Search of Leprechauns at Historic Yates Mill County Park in Raleigh. Listen to Irish music, read leprechaun stories and build your own leprechaun trap to help catch these clever creatures. The event is for ages 6-12, and registration is required.
There’s also a Saint Patrick’s Day Story Time at Saint Raphael Preschool in Raleigh. All children, ages 18 months to 5 years, and their parents will enjoy a storytime snack and music program.

And finally, the Wake County Animal Center is running a St. Patrick’s Day special on adoptions. If you’ve been thinking of adding to your family with a four-legged friend, now is the time.
