Winter is in full swing, but the snow won't keep us from enjoying the kick-off of St. Patrick's Season! Wherever you are on February 15th, send out a toast to Guinness and St. Practice Day. You'll be one of so many around the world doing the same. Read on for more information about this fast-growing celebration.

While you're preparing to toast with friends and family, make sure to visit NiagaraCeltic.com for upcoming events, our souvenir sale, and the latest updates for our 13th annual festival. We've begun rolling out the thousands of photos captured during out 12th festival, both on our website and Facebook, to help get everyone excited for this year. Who knows, you may see yourself or someone you know! Be sure to visit Facebook for an upcoming contest, and in a few short weeks we'll begin announcing this year's performers.
