Oshkosh, WI -- The luck of the Irish is in Oshkosh this weekend. Hundreds are celebrating the annual Irish Fest. The fun kicked off Friday night with music, food, rides and games. Organizers say it was an idea that started four years ago to spread the joy of the Irish culture.
"Everyone is always Irish on St. Patrick's Day. Well, they are always Irish on Irish Festival as well. Some people are Irish, others aren't, others can be Irish enthusiasts. The idea is to try and be all inclusive for everyone to be Irish for the whole weekend," said festival organizer Jeff Propson.
You can enjoy the fun Saturday and Sunday as well at Oshkosh's Leach Amphitheater.
