All around the world, tourists at some of the planet’s most notable attractions will be seeing green on March 17.
Tourism Ireland has been “greening” attractions for a few years, but there are some recent additions to the list of participating sites. The Pyramids of Giza, the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro and the “Welcome” sign in Las Vegas are among the newcomers to the emerald trend.
“It’s the fourth year of the ‘global greening’ initiative and Tourism Ireland will now kick off its first major promotional campaign for 2013 in the key markets of Britain, Mainland Europe, North America, Australia and new markets like China, India and South America,” Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Leo Varadkar said in a statement. “We’ll be using every opportunity to send out the message that Ireland is the place to visit in 2013, including through the visit of major global media outlets to Dublin on 17 March. Irish landmarks will also be going green including Leinster House, St Stephen’s Green, the Four Courts and Charles Fort in Kinsale, with further announcements likely.”
Both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the falls will be aglow in green on St. Patrick’s Day.
