A Visit to the Irish Fair





We live a short walk from Harriet Island, which is a large open park next to the Mississippi River in Saint Paul.
This weekend is the annual Irish Fair and the kids and I ventured there to take in a little music and dancing while we ate our picnic dinner.
I have a feeling we'll go back tomorrow again, since admission is free, and hopefully I won't forget my wallet (oops).
The spirits of my Celtic forebears must have been with us, though, because two strangers handed us their left-over tickets as they were leaving so we ended up with free drinks!
What are you up to this weekend?
