The South Florida Irish Community invites everyone to join a traditional Celtic celebration at the 37th Annual St. Patrickâ€™s Day Festival from high noon till 6 p.m., Saturday, March 12. The festival will be held at Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park in Coral Gables (2800 Ponce de Leon Boulevard) just five blocks south of Miracle Mile.
Entertainment will be provided by Avalon featuring the popular Irish singer and harpist, Tricianne Garrihy; The Paddy Kelleghan Band; The Cool Old Dudes and by the St. Andrew Pipe and Drum Band. Pianist Peter Fuchs will tickle the ivories during the interludes. In addition, Irish dancers from the Breffni Academy of Dance led by Michael Oâ€™Hara will provide plenty of fancy stepping and gravity-defying leaps. Lovely participants of The Miss Colleen Pageant will be showcased on stage.
Holding to the belief that â€œEveryone is a little bit Irish on St. Patrickâ€™s Day,â€ The St. Patrickâ€™s Day Committee has combined family-oriented entertainment and a variety of palate-pleasing delectables such as traditional corned beef & cabbage, shepherdâ€™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 childrenâ€™s activities, including a giant slide, the very popular rock-climbing wall, a merry-go-round and a bounce house. A wide variety of Irish crafts will be available for sale by high quality vendors.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
