Kicking Off 2013 St. Pat's in Five Points: Friday, March 1
Thursday, February 28, 2013 11:34 AM by Meredith Almond
You don't have to wait until March 16 to get into the green and Gaelic spirit with St. Pat's in Five Points. Meet us at the Five Points fountain Friday, March 1 at 5:00 pm for the Official 2013 St. Pat's in Five Points Kick-off!
This Friday, you can take part in the ceremonious Five Points fountain-dying - where the water will run as green as a leprechaun himself. Each year, hundreds of little leprechauns (and their much taller chaperones) come out to help dye the fountain green in anticipation for the shamrock-shaking festivities ahead.
Joining the fountain-dying will be the national award-winning Rince N'ah Eireann Irish step dancers, accompanied by bagpipers dressed in traditional Irish garb.
While you're in Five Points...keep an eye out for Logan, a bronze Leprechaun who hides in multiple locations across the district. Can you find them all?
