Get your Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, which is tomorrow, with Patty in The Parc at Parc International in downtown Lafayette.
“We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in a family environment in the most optimistic and tastiest town in the State of Louisiana - in the country,” says John O’Meara, of the Theatre League of Louisiana.
Gates open for the day-long event at 2:30 p.m. with Celjun and the Ryan School of Irish, the Molly Ringwalds, Nik-L-Beer, Jamie Bergeron & the Kickin’ Cajuns and Leroy Stank Blues Review.
“It’s a Theatre League of Louisiana event that brings together regional music in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day,” says O’Meara, adding that event is sponsored by Jameson Irish Whiskey and “there will be plenty of green beer.”
The Theatre League began hosting the St. Patrick’s Day celebration when Bennigan’s on Ambassador Caffery closed a couple of years ago.
“We scooped it up and moved it downtown,” says O’Meara. “We had a tremendous turnout last year in its first run.”
Tickets are $15. Children 12 years old and younger are free.
