The luck of the Irish has arrived in the Delaware Valley this weekend. Philly kids can search for leprechauns, listen to Celtic music, take a St. Patrick's Day train ride, and see an Irish dance performance. Many parades are set to march down the streets of Levittown, Springfield, Wilmington, and Conshohocken so be sure to grab the perfect viewing spot. Afterwards, head to an Irish festival at Green Parrot Restaurant Pub & Patio or Molly Maguire's Irish Restaurant & Pub.

While there certainly is a lot of St. Patrick's Day fun, the weekend isn't all about the Irish. Harry Potter fans can search through the Philadelphia Museum of Art on a themed scavenger hunt. Those interested in meditation and yoga can participate in St. Alban's Mindfulness Day. Girls can learn about coding at First African Baptist Church while kids interested in archaeology can spend time digging at Newlin Grist Mill. Don't forget to get a jumpstart on updating the kids' closets for spring at the many consignment sales going on this weekend. Hopefully, you'll catch some good deals, if you aren't able to catch a leprechaun.
