Break out the green and get ready for  lots of fun  happening at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds this weekend as the Great American Irish Festival gets underway. 

Check out three jam packed days of food, dancing, music and vendor booths, starting July 27th and wrapping up on July 29th.  I went a couple of years ago and had a blast at the festival.  Kids  under thirteen get in for free and there's no charge for parking either.  Love Irish sweaters and Celtic  jewelry?  This festival is for you.   Tons of cool stuff to buy and lots of yummy food too. (not just Irish fare either, in case you're not a fan)  Don't miss the bagpipes competition either.  Runners, take part in the 5k Ranger Run  on Saturday.  Want to win tickets for the Great American Irish Festival?  Join Mark Richards all this week for Morning Mindbender Trivia around 6:50 am.  Good luck!
