Things to do in Redding CA on St Patty’s day was a smashing hit, to say the least. A variety of St Patrick’s events in Redding CA were many. Everywhere you went it was common to see many shades of green, green beer, green shirts, green hats and green clover stickers and yes green paint on parts of the human anatomy.
Trying to capture just the main festivities took a herculean task within allowed time restraints.
The Need to Rush made for quite a challenge because of the many events happening at the same time.
After slamming down a protein drink and grabbing my gear I headed downtown to capture some of the highlighted festivities, it all started getting intense after parking my car in the underground parking lot of the old downtown mall area. After parking my vehicle, to my dismay I had stepped out into a group of highly decorated green females that looked like they could have played a part in a Star Trek episode with Captain James T Kirk of the USS Enterprise, (that lucky devil)!
After capturing the bagpipers at Shameless, I bounced over to The Dip across the street where things were blowing up green with famous local DJ Bucky Dun Gun.
Bagpipers were scheduled to play at 12:00, 3:00 & 6:00 O’clock at Shameless O’Leery’s. Getting there about 5:45 with gear in hand and ready to shoot the last appearance and it finally happened at around 7:20, long wait indeed but have to say it was worth every minute. If you watch close enough you will see something funny and totally unexpected happen to one of the female bagpipers, look at the video below.
After capturing the bagpipers at Shameless O’Leery’s I came across individuals that were really into celebrating St Patty’s day here in the north state, you can see some of the pics within this post.
In many establishments across City of Redding and the greater Shasta County, it was an amazing experience to see people from all walks of life celebrating St Patty’s day here in NorCal.
Final wrap up, we received this breaking news about a baby boy being sentenced to house arrest for getting too rough with his stuffed leprechaun toy on St Patty’s Day in Redding CA….
