Join the Irish American Club of Maine this weekend for their Annual Traditional Irish Dinner this Saturday evening, March 12, 2011, at St. Dominic’s Church on the corner of State Street and Gray Street in Portland. Fill up on great food while enjoying the company of great people.
On Sunday, head down to Commercial Street in Portland for the Annual St. Patricks Parade beginning at noon, at Becky’s Diner, which will proceed down Commercial Street and end with a Ceili Dance at RiRa Irish Pub, 72 Commercial Street, Portland, from 2:30pm-4:30pm with live music. Not that the celebration will ever end…even though it’s Sunday. There will be pipe bands, flags, marchers, music and fun.
Great! We don’t have to wait until Thursday, when St. Patrick’s Day is officially recognized to celebrate. Not that any other day stopped us before. Portland has always been a buzz on St. Patrick’s Day. Wake up at dawn and enjoy a traditional breakfast downtown and get the festivities started early.
Enjoy your weekend, your family and friends, and your beer. Take care!
