Leprechauns, Shamrocks and Prizes Oh My!

Who says it’s not easy being green!?

St. Patrick’s Day will be here before we know it and even though #DowntownSac will look a little different this year, there’s still plenty to celebrate while experiencing a fun, physically distanced holiday. Many of our businesses are OPEN with plans to celebrate all things green with LUCKY specials.

*Individuals are encouraged to adhere to state and local guidelines. Please plan your downtown visit with only members of your own household, wear a mask in public, maintain physical distance at least 6′ apart from those not in your group and stay home if sick or exhibiting fever, cough, respiratory symptoms, or shortness of breath.
