WalletHub recently evaluated over 200 United States cities to determine the best places to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Great news for Minnesota, St. Paul was ranked number 17 on the list!

The cities were evaluated based on their St. Patrick’s Day traditions, ticket and event costs, safety and accessibility, and St. Patrick’s Day weather.


Minnesota got high marks for having the third lowest DUI related fatalities per capita. But, the "Land of 10,0000 Lakes" did however have one of the highest average prices for St. Patrick's Day party tickets, counting against us.

Buffalo, New York was ranked number one, and Grand Rapids, Michigan was number 20.

St. Patrick's Day is Friday, March 17 this year! Remember to wear green, or you're likely to get pinched.
