Having married into an Irish family, McGinley doesn’t get more Irish than that, St. Patrick’s Day is an observed holiday in our household. Although St. Patrick probably wasn’t a small green fella his cohort, the leprechaun, holds lots of charm, is a bit rambunctious and likes his shenanigans. This is the second year of the Durango Celtic Festival. It is sure to delight both young and old with all the music, dancing and great food. The festivities start on March 6th and got through the 9th. I took a peek at the schedule of events. The Durango Celtic Festival will feature music venues at the Henry Strater Theatre and the Irish Embassy Pub along with a story telling event, as they call it. What kind of stories could they tell? I bet they will be colorful and maybe a nod to a shot or two of Tullamore? While enjoying the festivities don’t forget to admire the history and architecture of both the Henry Strater and the Irish Embassy Pub.
O-Bar-O Cabins is getting into the spirit. The snow is receding and things are turning green as if they are preparing for St. Patrick’s visit. Mike is practicing his Celtic dances, that should be fun to watch, and the birds are singing the forlorn tunes of Celtic past and present. It’s time to tune up those legs and instruments in preparation for the Celtic Festival. If you happen to catch up to one of those leprechauns make sure to let us know at O-Bar-O. You never know, it might just be a long lost relative! Especially if he has a mustache. Now, off to fire up the slow cooker for some corned beef and cabbage. Enjoy the festival.
