Boise Highlanders Paint the Town Green for St. Patrick’s Day
The local band will be all around the valley, all weekend
The Boise Highlanders have been an important part of local St. Patrick’s Day celebrations for more than 50 years. About 35 people make up the “all-volunteer group of bagpipers, drummers, dancers, and singers, who range in age from around 10-years-old to around 70-years-old. Each St. Patrick’s Day, the Highlanders perform in bars, restaurants, open-air areas, churches and more, and they have become so popular and so widely requested, they’re breaking up into four groups this year to cover more ground.
If you’re out celebrating this St. Patrick’s Weekend, there’s a good chance you’ll be treated to some badass bagpiping, but to make sure you don’t miss seeing the Highlanders, check out the schedule below.
Be safe, be smart, and GO! celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!
