St. Patrick’s Day, the one day where everybody feels Irish, is just around the corner.

With the holiday falling on a Sunday, Legislators at the State House here in Augusta are working on a bill to allow Maine’s bars to open at 6 a.m., three hours later than the state law-mandated time of 9 a.m.

According to WLBZ, State Representative Barry Hobbins of Saco has sponsored a bill in Augusta to allow the earlier opening times, saying that bars could lose quite a bit of money if they aren’t allowed to be open earlier.

With the holiday falling on a Sunday, many local celebrations have been moved to Saturday night. O’Brien’s Event Center, located at 375 Main St. in Waterville will be hosting a two-day “St. Patrick’s
Day Extravaganza” on March 16 and 17. There’ll be entertainment, green beer and givaways. Call 873-0111 for more information.

Believe it or not, there are events on the weekend of St. Patrick’s Day that don’t involve solely drinking green beer and singing along to old Irish tunes. Just 90 minutes from Augusta, Saddleback Mountain in Rangeley will be holding a “St. Patrick’s Family Fun Day” on the slopes. The event is slated for Saturday, March 16, and will feature a Leprechaun/Shamrock Scavenger Hunt, and if you are the lucky one to find the “Pot-Of-Gold” you will win a 2013-14 season pass.
