Return to the Green Irish Festival
März 5, 2009
Return to the Green is held each March, on the Sunday prior to St. Patrick’s Day. This Irish festival and one-day event is set in historic Falls Park against the backdrop of the Reedy River. The celebration includes traditional Celtic music, bagpipes, dance, Irish food, drinks and a variety of children’s activities. Wear green and bring the entire family.
Greenville’s St. Baldrick’s will also be held in conjunction with the family celebration of Irish culture.
Men, women and children go bald in solidarity with kids who typically lose their hair during cancer treatment. The shavees solicit donations for their willingness to lose their hair for a good cause. All funds go to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, supporting childhood cancer research.
Last year’s event raised about $50,000 in Greenville, and the Foundations hopes to double that amount this year.
