What sets Shamrock’n the Block apart from other St.
Patrick’s Day events is its welcoming spirit.
“Old Saint Patrick is the home of the Irish in Chicago, but the best part about being Irish, especially this weekend in Chicago, is that everybody’s welcome,” said Keller.
“It feels like a whole family celebration.”
The event is kid-friendly, with games and a balloon artist, making it the perfect place for the entire family to enjoy.
The festivities will continue until 5:30 pm, with new acts and performances every half hour.
