Dublin's 32nd Annual St. Patrick's Day Festival closes today with festivities from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Dublin Civic Center on Dublin Boulevard.
The event includes three stages of authentic Irish music and dance, 250 craft and commercial vendors. These will feature an Irish Marketplace, Irish Tea Cottage, Irish food and carnival rides for all ages.
This morning, the city will host the 17th Annual Shamrock 5K Fun Run and Walk. The race will begin at 8:30 a.m. along Dublin Boulevard near the Civic Center, and wind its way through central Dublin, finishing at the festival with live music, awards and giveaways for participants.
Parking for the festival is where you can find it. Out-of-town visitors can also ride BART to either the East or West Dublin BART Stations and connect for free onto Wheels buses directly to the front entry of the Festival, using a special pass available during this weekend.
