PORT ST. LUCIE -- The corned beef and green beer are only a few of the attractions at this year's St. Patrick's Day Festival and parade taking place at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center from March 15 to 17.

Whether you're a spectator or participant, it's hard not to feel the luck o' the Irish when surrounded by a sea of green.

The authentic Irish music of the Rowdy Micks will get everyone in the Irish spirit on Friday, March 15. For thrill-seekers, the carnival midway will offer rides and games from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Friday night, from noon to 11 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

On Saturday morning, sounds of Ireland will fill the air as the Dublin City Ramblers and the Port St. Lucie Concert Band take the stage.

The popular St. Patrick's Day parade will begin at 11 a.m. and wind its way through the streets of city center. Floats, children's groups, dancers, twirlers and maybe even a leprechaun or two will be sure to entertain crowds.

An Irish marketplace will offer arts and crafts, food vendors, and a variety of other booths. Authentic Irish food and beer will also be available to those who spend the day at the event.

On Sunday, March 17, the celebration continues with live music by the Dublin City Ramblers.

Admission and parking are free.

Patrons are advised to bring a lawn chair and blanket to sit back, relax and celebrate the luck of the Irish.
