When we think of St. Patrick’s Day in Northeast Ohio, we think of the Cleveland parade, a sea of green (including green beer), and tons and tons of fun! St. Paddy’s Day is a beloved tradition here, from Cleveland to Akron. If you’re looking to celebrate near the Hudson area, you’re in luck! Here are some of our favorite ways to spend the holiday, brought to you by the team at Alair Homes Hudson.
