Dublin Your Pleasure

It may just be us, but the ignorance about traditional Irish culture in ’burg is quite staggering. Don’t believe us? Mention anything Celtic to the average Phoenician and you’ll likely get some drivel about the hottest team in the NBA. If we had the time, we’d march every single Ireland ignoramus to Margaret T. Hance Park to partake in the 25th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Irish Faire. An array of floats, bands, and other parade attractions departs from Third Street and Virginia at 10 a.m., making its way to the park, where a daylong celebration filled with Emerald Isle-inspired music, dancing, food, and festivities runs from noon to 5 p.m.
Sat., March 15, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2008
