IRISH FOUNTAIN FEST
Get ready to ShamROCK the Hills with this year’s Irish Fountain Fest at Fountain Park! Wear your favorite St. Patty’s green attire or go all out and rock a kilt! Choose from almost a dozen food trucks and grab a pint at the Hensley beer garden. Relax in the grass, bring a chair, or show off your Celtic dance moves to the tunes of Celtic music and traditional Irish folk dancing appearances. This year’s event features the Kilted Spirit Band, Traveler (a Celtic rock band), and bagpipers.
This FREE family-friendly event includes a kid’s zone where your little leprechauns can run out some of their energy. Choose from nearly a dozen food trucks to fuel up for the day and to enjoy some lucky treats.
And don’t forget the greatest moment of all! The fountain will turn a shamrock green at Noon and at 4:00pm.
