Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with an Amazing Mask

On Saturday, March 13, 2010 (this weekend), MASK will be attending the St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival from10am - 5pm in San Francisco at the Civic Center Park.

According to Wikipedia, Saint Patrick's Day (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig) colloquially St. Paddy's Day or simply Paddy's Day, is an annual feast day that celebrates Saint Patrick (circa AD 387–493), the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland, and is generally celebrated on March 17th.

A great event for adults and kids, the 158th Annual 2010 San Francisco St. Patrick's Day Parade attracts more than 5,000 participants from all over the country. The Festival will take place, before, during and after the Parade at San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza and on Grove Street, Polk to Larkin Street.

The addition of the Festival after the parade provides a great opportunity for attendees to learn more about Irish history and culture while having a great time experiencing the day. A full day of activity is planned for the St. Patrick's Day Festival at Civic Center Plaza and on Grove Street, Polk to Larkin Street.

The festivities surrounding the Parade Festival will showcase Irish Culture through live performance and entertainment, arts and crafts exhibitors, food and beverage concessions, children's rides and inflatable's, cultural displays, a petting zoo and pony ride and a number of non-profits booths representing the Irish community.

Yelp users rated it 3.5 stars. SF Weekly shows a cool picture of Irish dancers in mid air.

We look forward to seeing all you lassies there!
