Fun, fervor and music at this year's fest
After all, Boston’s Irish ancestry is so dominant that the city named its basketball team the Celtics. Chicago goes to the trouble of dyeing its river green for St. Patrick’s Day. Comparatively, Milwaukee doesn’t have a huge Irish population, but we do have the fervor, enthusiasm and dedication of the nearly 4,000 volunteers who commit their time and energy to ensuring Irish Fest’s success.
