st-pats-girl3The green countdowns have begun. First, there's the countdown to Dublin (Ohio's) St. Paddy's Day celebration ... just 12 days away. (March 14.) No matter what the weather, it's greener in Dublin ... especially during the miles-long parade when hundreds of marching units, floats, clowns and other entries hit the streets of Historic Dublin. (In fact, one can usually find a little green ON the streets of Historic Dublin.) It's a great, inexpensive day of family fun that offers a break from the winter blahs.

Additionally, we're counting down the days to the 2009 Dublin Irish Festival! Named to the American Bus Association's list of Top 100 Events in North America for 2009, the event is not to be missed. To get an idea of all that's included in this three-day Irish celebration, visit the event's NEW web site. Check out the list of great entertainment scheduled ... and you'll  begin to see why attending this needs to go on your "Bucket List."
