It's Fun Being Green
St. Party's Day
Mar 16 to Mar 17
Attend at your own risk! Dust off your green jacket, t-shirt, gitch, shoes, hat, etc. Throw on the face paint, Kiss Me I'm Irish pins and anything else that is green. Take your favourite Leprechaun and Lucky Charms, because they say this is going to be Toronto's craziest St. Patty's Day event.
