St. Patrick’s day is almost here and ASG Parking in DC is ready for the action! St. Patrick’s day originated as a Roman Catholic holiday, meant to commemorate the birth of Christianity in Ireland, and the life of the nation’s patron saint. Today, however, Washingtonians of all faiths and cultures come together for one of the city’s greatest celebrations. So wear your green (so you don’t get pinched!) and follow these tips from ASG for a safe and happy festival.
Check out the parade – On Sunday March 15, at 12 noon, proud Irish Washingtonians will be out in emerald for this celebration. Just be sure to get there early and beat the crowds. The parade starts at 7th St. & Constitution Ave NW and continues up to 17th St. Get there early to utilize Atlantic Services Group’s Penn Quarter parking, or parking in Chinatown. Keep your car safe from the crowds, while you enjoy the revelry worry-free.
Metro to Shamrockfest – One of the most fun parts of a Paddy’s Day celebration is Shamrockfest at RFK stadium fairgrounds. On Saturday March 21, see great live bands here, and show off your kilt legs in the men’s and women’s competitions. Park your car at an ASG DC metro parking spot near you, and metro down to Stadium Armory for the festival. You’re sure to have lots of good times and Guinness ahead of you, which leads us to our final tip…
Drink responsibly – We encourage our customers to enjoy their St. Patrick’s Day safely. If you choose to drink during any of the above festivities, or at the local pubs, please do not get behind the wheel. Atlantic Services Group has parking near several DC metros, so you may take public transit to and from authentic Irish pubs such as Kelly’s Irish Times, and the Dubliner. If you prefer to take a car to your destination, make sure you have a designated driver. ASG provides plenty of Washington DC parking near these popular Irish-influenced venues.
However you choose to celebrate this fantastic day, ASG is here to ensure it is happy and safe. Grab your loved ones, kiss them (Irish or not), and head out to the festivities, all the while keeping your car secure at a low hourly cost.
