St. Patrick's Day Celebration

With the anticipation of Spring, but still in the grip of Winter, the residents of Emmetsburg, Iowa, strive to break the monotony of the long cold season by reliving the customs of their ancestors. Each year, they commemorate the feast of Ireland's patron, St. Patrick, and recall the life of one of Ireland's heroes, Robert Emmet, with a three day St. Patrick's Day celebration, the likes of which are unequaled in all the land!
