Lots of green at Penn-Mar Irish fest

Show Caption

An all-day festival about all things Irish went off without a hitch on Saturday at the Markets at Shrewsbury.

Crowds browsed the many vendors including the Infamous Welsh Cookie Company and Irish Lass Glass during the 16th annual Penn-Mar Irish Festival, which is held annually on the third Saturday in June.

Artists like the Screaming Orphans and Maggie O'Grady Storyteller also took to the stage along with groups like the Susquehanna Pipes & Drums.

Festival-goers could fish for door prizes and watch a bit of Irish step dancing, all while eating some kettle corn and ice cream.

The festival is organized by a group of volunteers who strive to celebrate Celtic heritage.
