Saint Patrick’s Day at The Armstrong Hotel
Spring marks the beginning of our favorite time of year here in Fort Collins – festival season!
It’s time to pack a blanket, grab the kids, and head out to this year’s first Downtown festival. We’ve got everything from our favorite costume-themed bicycle tour (who doesn’t love Tour de Fat?), to the rowdy nights and live music of New West Fest. Our festivals definitely make Fort Collins a summer destination, yet few of our guests have witnessed one of our very favorite spring festivals – the Lucky Joe’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Irish Party!
Lucky Joe’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Irish Party
The Armstrong Hotel is going green this year with a little help from our wonderful friends at Lucky Joe’s, and we’d like you to party with us. The event starts:
When: March 11th, 2017
