FROM 16TH TO 18TH OF MARCH WE CELEBRATED
THE ST. PATRICK´S DAY FESTIVAL
Every year there is a massive parade in
New York to celebrate the day. This is usually
watched by more than two million spectators
and has around 150,000 marchers participating.
In Chicago they dye the Chicago River green
and in Savannah, Georgia, the fountain waters
are dyed green. In many bars in the United
States they also serve green beer together
with ‘green’ food on the day.
Worldwide it is also an excuse to try out
Irish beverages such as Guinness, Bailey’s,
Magner’s, Irish Whiskey etc. All in
all, the day is a celebration party and
everybody is invited!
year the Ayuntamiento in Orihuela is pleased
to announce that there was a St Patrick’s
Day Festival held on the parking area near
the Mercadona at Playa Flamenca from the 16th
to the 18th of March. This was a mix of exhibition,
market and fiesta! The celebration was organized
in conjunction with the town hall of Orihuela
and included food, children’s play area,
Irish dancing, entertainment, music, market
stalls etc. There was something for everyone
and hopefully this will become an annual event.
