Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day festivities will give people another reason to get together today, however some partiers got a head start.

“I’m a hippie-leprechaun is what I was going for,” says Melissa Papia, who went dressed up to the Olde Sandwich Towne street party in Windsor celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday.

Windsorite Shean O’Keefe feels she has a pretty good idea of what makes St. Patrick’s Day a fan favourite occassion.

“Everyone’s like ‘oh hey fellow Irish’ you know, even if you’re not Irish who cares,” says O’Keefe. “It’s a fun time.”
