Things to do with families in Boston this weekend

Who's feeling lucky this weekend? The always-spirited St. Patrick's Day parade is winding its way through Southie this Sunday, Artbeat is crafting lucky rainbows, and even the zoo is celebrating all things green. Families can go on a Celtic sojourn, enjoy Irish entertainment, and even try some Irish dancing themselves (for free!)

Need some Spring in your step? The gorgeous blooms on display at the Boston Flower and Garden Show will get everyone looking forward to warmer days. Another holiday event worth noting is this Purim community event with a play, magician, aerialist, pizza, and more (also for free!).
