Tis the luck of the Irish we’ll be sharin’ on Colley Avenue, between Shirley & Gates Avenue in the Heart of Ghent, as we welcome all our neighbors to the party of the year, that has been a long standing tradition for the community.
Everyone will enjoy authentic Irish music from 6:00 P.M. – 8:00 P.M. along with a live band from from 8:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M.
The celebration will continue into the “wee” hours of the night at Ghent’s popular restaurants and nightspots.
All proceeds benefit Hope House Foundation a local non-profit organization providing independent living services to adults with developmental disabilities in Hampton Roads.
We encourage you to help us continue this annual St. Patty’s Day tradition and come out and enjoy the sounds and festivities and help us  “paint Ghent green!”
