Central Park with demonstrations by three Irish dance schools including Sarah

St. Patrick’s Day began as an annual feast day to celebrate St. Patrick,
the most commonly recognized patron saint of Ireland. The Irish have observed
this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years and it is currently recognized by
people of other ethnicities. The day is widely celebrated by wearing green clothing
and items such as shamrocks. According to Irish tradition, those who do not wear
green on St. Patrick’s Day face the risk of being affectionately pinched.
This celebration is made possible by the generous support of event sponsors
including the City of Winter Park’s CRA, Fiddler’s Green Irish Pub and Eatery,
the Irish American Cultural Society of Central Florida, and Florida Distributors
