Yesterday marked the end of Irish Week in Seattle, which culminated in a St. Patrick’s Day Parade and an Irish Week Festival at Seattle Center. I spent the week attending many of the events organized by the Irish Heritage Club and the hardworking Honorary Consul of Ireland, John Keane. The week started out with a soda bread competition at TS McHugh’s in Queen Anne with live music and Irish dancing to keep the crowd entertained while the judges chose the winners. My sister-in-law entered and took home an award for her brown soda bread. I took home the award-winning loaf and ate it!
On Friday I joined in the Seattle tradition of the Laying O’ The Green Stripe and then popped down to check out the parade on Saturday. Here are a few images from the day.
Hope you did something fun for St. Patrick’s Day.
