Do your kids need to release some pent-up winter energy? Head over to Zion Lutheran School and Early Childhood Center for their Saturday morning children’s carnival, including two bounce houses, carnival games, face painting, tattoos, a petting zoo, snacks and more. 10 am – 1 pm.
Celebrate your Irish spirit this Saturday with Sturgeon Bay’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade! The parade begins at Sawyer Park and proceeds to Oak Street, down Madison Avenue, before heading across the Oregon Street Bridge. After crossing the bridge, the parade continues onto Third Avenue and ends at the intersection of Third Avenue and Jefferson Street. 11 am.
Join the Sturgeon Bay Masonic Lounge for their 82nd annual Steamboat Dinner on Saturday. The family-style dinner includes roast beef, turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetable, baked beans, coleslaw, gravy, rolls, pie a la mode and a beverage. The dinner originated 82 years ago when a large number of the Masonic brethren sailed on the Great Lakes. Their families wanted to have a special send-off meal together in March before they left for the upcoming season on the steamboats. Eventually the dinner was opened to the public. 4 – 7 pm.
