Then, it was time for the adults to jump in and help the kids, through the hotel, the crew had hidden gold coins ( chocolate ones ), that the kids were able to find, and deposit on their pot of gold, whoever got the most, was the winner of a prize.

Later the afternoon, Adults were able to participate in a traditional Beer jugging competition, most of the participants were men, but that didn't stop the ladies from drinking a couple of green colored beer either.

GR Solaris, added value to this day, as they held a Flash soccer tournament in the beach, as you might imagine the heat was overwhelming, and the boys needed a cold green beer to quirst their tench, just to recover all the energy lost.

All the staff and personnel, dressed accordingly to the occasion, and you can notice all the Waiters and bartenders, had Green color hats, with drinks and special menu, like the green algae sushi.

How the Tradition started

Saint Patrick is the patron of the Irish, because it was he who introduced the Christianism to Ireland, it is said, that on 400 DC, it was easier to teach the word of the lord with a shamrock, tan with a cross,that's why its so emblematic nowadays, also for being a 4 leave clover, it brings you good luck, the color green is used, because its the primary color of their Flag, even on this day anyone who does not use the color on their clothing, will be subject to a pinch in their arm, as part of the tradition is to blend in to keep the leprechauns away.

The tradition of a parade was originated among other things in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and some cities like Chicago, they paint their rivers green, to show support for the people who live there that have Irish blood.

This is one more date you surely don't want to miss because of all of the fun that we have. There's no better place to enjoy festivities that with your Solaris Family.
