Push your luck here on the Space Coast

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2020 on Florida’s Space Coast

The color green has never looked better

You’ve made it a 2020 resolution this year to accept new challenges, reach new goals and so far, you are doing pretty well at hitting some of them. “Well, don’t push your luck,” you may hear some of your friends and family or even coworkers say. But go ahead and push it! Because like Douglas MacArthur said, “The best luck of all is the luck you make for yourself.” So consider celebrating those wins along the way and what better time than during one of the “greenest” time of the year: St. Patrick’s Day!

The Space Coast is full of ways to celebrate, but if you want to make it extra lucky this year, check out these hot spots for traditional Irish fare and activities. You may just hit the jackpot and find some gold…well, a good time at least.
