"Halfway" is an Irish-American
holiday, short for "Halfway to St. Patrick's Day
." It is celebrated annually on September 17. It can also be celebrated as Halfway to Unofficial
. It is most often celebrated where there are high concentrations of Irish-Americans, such as Illinois
, and Minnesota
, but Celtic
clubs and pubs in other states are continuing the trend by hosting 5k runs, barcrawl
s, or Irish music concerts.
