The upcoming spring holidays provide fun activities for families in Fort Wayne and Northeast Indiana. You might not think of St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) as a family holiday, but for the past few years, it has become one thanks to the Fort Wayne Firefighters Go Green Fest.
The fun starts at 9:30 on Saturday, March 15 with the kilts optional 5K Kilt Race through downtown Fort Wayne. The race starts at the corner of Superior and Calhoun streets, and all are welcome to walk or run.
Then on to the Old Well’s Street Bridge at 11am for the annual river greening. Watch as our fire department dyes the usually brown waters of the St Mary’s River an eco-friendly green in honor of St. Pat.
From 9:30am to 3pm, it’s the Strongman Competition. Teams push, pull, and lift heavy things like water filled kegs, tires, and more.
While the strong men are being strong, you and the family can party on the Wells Street Corridor. There’s music, food, Lucky the Leprechaun, eating contests, a kids fun zone and gold coin drop.
After 6pm, it’s time to send the kids home or off to grandmas, and time to party with live bands and cold drinks.
One of the great things about apartment living at Willow Creek Crossing Apartments is that on Saturday, March 15, you don’t have to work in your yard. You can spend the day with your family at the Go Green Fest in downtown Fort Wayne and up along the Well’s Street Corridor.
