LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Held by Irishfest, Saturday's Post Parade Social at the Brickhouse in downtown La Crosse featured live music from Pigtown Fling & Friends, Irish dancers, food and drinks.
Like during the St. Patrick's Day Parade that proceeded it, donations were collected for the Hunger Task Force.
A director of Irishfest, Patrick Mullaney, said that along with feeding members of the community, the event helps preserve Irish heritage and culture.
"It's just something we can pass on to the next generation: where we came from. My mom's here, she's 91. She's got Irish background as my dad did, and then we can pass that on to our children and hopefully their children," said Mullaney.
The 15th Annual Irishfest will start later in the year on August 9th.
