IRISH DAY 2008



LUCK OF THE IRISH HOLDS OUT
ALTHOUGH WEATHER HINDERS SOME

* Irish Day 2008 broke with an ominous thunderstorm and heavy rains, but by parade time, things couldn’t have been more perfect.
* This year’s crowd, however, was quite a bit thinner than last year, due partly to impending rain which tapered off by mid-morning, leaving behind clear skies for the big Irish Day Parade on Saturday, March 15.
* Must have been the Luck of the Irish, working overtime, according to lots of locals, who were just pleased that the hour-and-a-half parade stayed dry up until the very last few participants.
*Then it only sprinkled for about 30 more minutes, and people didn’t seem to mind as they went from booth-to-booth, or to the carnival, or to just visit with their Irish neighbors.
* The temperature even cooperated, with many people enjoying short-sleeves or light jackets.
* Weather withstanding, the day went ALMOST without a hitch…
* Stay tuned for the following IRISH DAY features:

* Couple Arrested for Leaving Baby In Locked Car

* Residents Rally Around Couple

* Music Venues Bring Entertainment to Erin

* Around Town: A Few “First” This Year
