There’s a lot going on this spring in the little town of Dublin, about a 2-hour drive southwest from DFW or northwest from Waco!  The town celebrates it’s designation as the Irish Capital of Texas with their annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival and Parade!  The fun kicks off with the 5K Shamrock Shuffle, a Celtic Concert at Celebration Park on Friday, March 11th, and continues on Saturday the 12th with the parade at 10am, and family friendly activities and live music all day!
