There are tons of ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, from guzzling Guinnesses to attending Morning Mass. Our goal is to help you find and learn about whatever it is you want to do this weekend.
Reston, VA (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
MapMuse today announced the release of its 2013 St. Patrick’s Day Locators, a series of interactive web maps that connect users with businesses and events celebrating the holiday. Revelers can now find and learn about St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations, St. Patrick’s Day Parades, St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawls, Irish Pubs, and Catholic Churches in their neighborhood and across the country.
“There are tons of ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, from guzzling Guinnesses to attending Morning Mass,” says MapMuse owner Mike Pilon. “Our goal is to help you find and learn about whatever it is you want to do this weekend.” The locators are comprised of online maps pinned with the locations of points of interest. Clicking on a business or event brings up its profile page, which is packed with helpful data such as contact details, background information, web links, reviews, and photos. Users can also get driving directions from any location. “We make it as easy as possible to get from Point A to Point B, which we know can be a major struggle on such a festive holiday," says Pilon.
MapMuse has plenty of experience developing holiday-themed locators, having published some of the web’s most popular Christmas and Fourth of July maps. All five St. Patrick’s Day locators appeared in the 2012 release, but have been updated for the new year. “It’d be a major buzz kill to show up at a pub crawl that doesn’t exist,” says Pilon. Although the majority of data work takes place in-house, many event organizers and business owners keep their own listings current to attract more customers. Anyone, however, is welcome to suggest a change to a locator; all edits are vetted by MapMuse for accuracy before going live.
