Get ready to dig out that “Kiss Me – I’m Irish” shirt. On Saturday, Atlantic Station will host one of Atlanta’s biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebration – the third-annual ShamRock the Station.

ShamRock the Station will follow the Atlanta St. Patrick’s Parade, the longest running event in the city of Atlanta.

The parade will take place in Midtown from noon to 1:30 p.m., beginning at 16th Street and Peachtree Street and continuing south to 5th Street.

ShamRock the Station will begin at 2 p.m. at Atlantic Station. Guests can hop on the Atlantic Station “Free Ride” Shuttle at the Art Center MARTA Station. 

Guests can enjoy a variety of free, family-friendly activities including sand art, artificial tattoos, hair painting, a performance by the Mulligan Irish Dancers at 2:30 p.m. followed by bagpipe performances.

Face painting is also available for $5, and proceeds go to Museum of Design Atlanta. All family activities will conclude at 6 p.m. to prepare for the ShamRock the Station St. Patty’s Day concert featuring The Ruckus, a party band that will rock the park with a mix of current tunes.

Here's more St. Patrick's events, and some that aren't, on what looks to be a fun-filled Saturday around the metro area:
