Feeling lucky? Luck o' the Irish lucky? No matter what your background why not celebrate Irish heritage at a local St. Patrick's Day Parade?
First up is the Pottsville Parade on Saturday, March 16. The parade begins at 11 am in downtown Pottsville and will be followed by the Grand Irish Party at Humane Fire Company. Tickets for the Grand Irish Party are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at Murphy Jewelers.
If you miss Pottsville's Parade, head to Girardville for their parade on Saturday, March 30 at noon.
Of course, the St. Patrick's Day fun isn't confined to parades only. Two libraries, Orwigsburg and Pottsville, are having St. Patrick's Day parties for their children readers (ages 3 to 12). Both parties are this Thursday, March 14 at 6 p.m. For adults there is a St. Patrick's Day Dance at the Frackville Elks on Saturday, March 16 with music by Sakes Alive. There is a cash bar, a $7 cover and doors open at 7 p.m.
