The family-friendly event is always held the third Saturday in March and offers a parade, carnival, demolition derby, live music, food galore, and arts and crafts. Festival decorating starts weeks in advance and includes decked out store fronts, Irish flags flying from every building and homes with fun decor. Even City Hall is green from top to bottom.
