St. Patty's Day In Full Swing In Emerald Isle

The spotty rain and cool temperatures didn't stop festival goers from being green at Saturday's St Patty's day festival in the green city of Emerald Isle.

The 18Th annual festival kicked off Saturday at 9am.

Festival goers turned up for the Celtic music, Irish food, amusement rides, and to check out the local arts and craft vendors.

Many green munchkins also had a chance to participate in the little leprechaun contest.

Over 20-thousand festival goers turn up for this Irish event each year.

WITN is a proud sponsor of the event.
