The Conejo Recreation and Park District’s Thousand Oaks Community Center will host its Eighth (8th) Annual St. Patrick’s Day family event, the Leprechaun’s Lucky Gold Hunt. This event will take place on St. Patrick’s Day and is intended primarily for children.
Festivities will include fun things such as arts and crafts, Irish soda bread tasting, a magician, a myriad of game tents, a (temporary) tattoo station, and a comical leprechaun trap demonstration, and of course the main event, hunting for gold coins!
The doors and various will open at 4:00 p.m. and the hunt will commence at 5:00 p.m.
Once all the gold coins have been collected or time has expired, the children can trade their coins for fun and amazing prizes.
Fun St. Patrick’s Day Facts
- PATRICK NEVER WORE GREEN
In fact, St. Patrick was known for wearing a soft blue. Green was only linked to the holiday in the 18th century because of Irish independence.
- SHAMROCKS ARE NOT RANDOM
Shamrocks, as Irish legend has it, were used by Patrick as a metaphor to signify the Holy Trinity when he spread the word of Christianity to Ireland.
- PATRICK NOT AN IRISHMAN
5th-century birth records are hard to come by, even for figures as important as St. Patrick. What is known is that he was born to Roman parents in either Wales or Scotland.
- FEMALE LEPRECHAUNS ARE MYTHICAL
Despite what you may see in 21st-century-holiday decorations, female leprechauns do not actually exist in Irish lore.
