In addition, Irish dancers from the Breffni Academy of Dance led by Michael O’Hara will provide plenty of fancy stepping and gravity-defying leaps. The St. Patrick’s Day Committee has combined family-oriented entertainment and a variety of palate-pleasing delectables such as traditional corned beef & cabbage, shepherd’s pie, authentic Irish Coffee, Irish soda bread, and whiskey cake as well as a wide array of spirits and other beverages including Irish whisky and Irish stout. The festival will also include many children’s activities, including a giant slide, the very popular rock-climbing wall and a merry-go-round. A wide variety of Irish crafts will be available for sale by high quality vendors. For more info, call 305-949-8400 or email stpatrickssf@g.mail.com.
