Leap Day Blizzard and Duluth March Events

Greetings from The Firelight Inn Duluth Bed and Breakfast on this Leap Day Blizzard in Duluth Minnesota. We are watching the storm from the snow-covered windows and listening to the roar of the wind and on the Weather Channel we can see film clips of the huge waves coming off of Lake Superior. It would be fun to venture out to see the waves ourselves but the only traveling we will attempt today is to get to our friends’ wedding in Proctor at 5 p.m. We hear snow plows not far away but our street is really impassable at this point. After such a wimpy winter so far, today has really put us back in the survivor mode of boots, scarves, shovels and lots of courage!

We are sharing some events that will be happening in March in Duluth and our Inn. By the end of the month, most of the suites will get brand new decor and carpeting. Deep and rich shades of red, brown, egg plant and blue carpet will be installed and will be ready for guests to sink their feet into! A major renovation will happen in the Barnum Suite with all new shades of gold and brown in a new love seat, linens and curtains and furnishings.

Travel to Duluth Minnesota in March and enjoy skiing, snow shoeing and outdoor activities and then relax with a bubble bath and firelight! During the first 14 days in March, many downtown Duluth restaurants will offer multi course fixed priced menus as they participate in the Eat Downtown Duluth Restaurant week. This is a great opportunity to try out some new menus!

Change of Pace Productions present “Murderous Crossing” dinner shows held at the Fitger’s Complex on Friday, Saturday and Sundays in March. This is an audience participation murder mystery and the year is 1923. Audience members are passengers on board the HMS Victoria as it crosses the English Channel. This promises to be a great dinner show and for more information, schedule, prices and reservations visit changeofpaceproductions on the Internet.

On March 9th at the Mitchell Auditorium at the College of St. Scholastica you may enjoy an evening of fantastic Scottish and Irish Music and Dance.

March 15-17 is Fitger’s Bock Fest. This free event held at Fitger’s Courtyard features eating contests, beer drinking contests, a beer tent and more and is not to be missed!

The Duluth Playhouse presents “Les Miserables”. This junior version of the Broadway Musical is based on the novel by Victor Hugo and tells the story of Jean Valjean who is transformed from a petty thief to an honorable mayor and loving father.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the Greysolon Ballroom with the Dueling Pianos! Doors open at 7 p.m. and the awesome show begins at 8 p.m.

March 30th is the annual Taste at Fitger’s which features the area’s finest chefs, sampling of wine, a silent auction and more to benefit the Second Harvest Northern Lake Food Bank.

Make your reservations to stay with us and enjoy all Duluth has to offer, relax in luxurious accommodations and let us spoil you with our unsurpassed hospitality and over the top service! View our suites and quiet season rates and we hope to see you soon.
