There might not be lucky charms, but you may get a mug o green beer at the 28th annual St. Patricks Day Irish Festival at Fred B. Hartnett Ponce Circle Park. From noon until sunset, partake in the South Florida Emerald Societys St. Paddys Day blowout, which will include entertainment, food, crafts, and even a pageant. Thasss right. (See, were already slurring from all that green beer.) Lasses from ages four to fourteen are encouraged to enter the Miss Colleen Pageant. If you ever wanted to see a leprechaun climb a rock or glide down a giant slide, then this is your event. Get in green (or pistachio or mint) and listen to musicians, including Peter Fuchs on keyboard, harpist Tricianne Garrihy, Irish balladeer Tipsy Laird, Michael OHara and the Breffni Dancers, and the St. Andrews Pipe Band. Leave Betty Crocker in the cupboard: Corned beef and cabbage, shepherds pie, soda bread, and whiskey cake are on the menu. Sprigs of clover are optional.
