Bask in the sun and raise a glass to the patron saint of Ireland; Orlando St. Patrick’s Day events ensure a sham-rocking great time.
Irish Cuisine and Culture Celebrated on St Patrick’s Day
What was featured on Lincoln’s Inaugural Lunch menu in 1860?
Was it (a) potatoes (b) corned beef (c) blackberry pie or (d) all of the above?
The answer is (d) all of the above.
Immigrants to America celebrated their roots and culture on St. Patrick’s Day and corned beef was the dish of choice. Unlike back home in Ireland, beef was easier and cheaper to obtain in America. Likewise, cabbage too was readily available.
Guests of Mission Inn Resort & Club can enjoy Orlando St. Patrick’s Day events with a presidential meal of their own on March 17th.

Emerald Fairways Ready for St. Patrick’s Day Play
Did you know Ireland’s official colour of state is blue?
While St. Patrick’s Day revelers get out the green, the Order of St. Patrick which dates back to the 180’s is actually blue. The colour green emerged during the rise of Irish nationalism in the 19th century.
And the Orlando St. Patrick’s Day events don’t stop with mouth-watering meals! Guest have been enjoying the green at Mission Inn for generations, and on March 17th might even find their St Paddy’s pot of gold with a hole-in-one.
