PONTIAC March 17, 2018
You could have mistaken parts of the Pontiac for the Emerald Isle on Saturday as revelers were out in force for one of the region's most popular celebrations: St. Patrick's Day. THE EQUITY was there to capture (the more PG-13) moments from this celebration of Irish heritage.
The young women of Quyon United Church put together an Irish Tea on Saturday morning, packing the basement with green clothing and lively conversation. Organizer Kara Young explained that this is the tenth year that she and her fellow volunteers have put on the event, and this year's was the most popular yet.
“This is our biggest crowd ever,” she said. “Probably because it's actually on St. Patrick's Day.”
The R.A. Hall in Campbell's Bay was packed from the early afternoon on, as party-goers came out to celebrate the holiday.
