Irish on Ionia festival goes ahead despite cold and snowy conditions
The Irish on Ionia festival went ahead on Saturday, despite the cold temperatures and snowy conditions in the area.
This was the first time the festival had taken place since it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it officially ended at 10 pm.
Despite the weather, thousands of people turned out to attend the event, which is the largest St.
Patrick’s Day celebration in the city.
Attendees spoke to crews downtown about their experiences, with one person saying they were just trying to make the most of being in America and enjoying a few beers and shots while having a laugh.
Despite the challenging weather conditions, the festival was a success, and many people were glad to have the opportunity to celebrate St.
Patrick’s Day with their fellow Irish Americans.
