Sacramento celebrates St.Patrick's Day

If you did not have green somewhere on you, you stuck out like a sore thumb on Thursday when hundreds came out with green hair, green glasses, green clothing, green hats and even green beards to celebrate St. Patricks Day.

At 2 p.m., Heather Garner, 32, was at the Golden Pacific Bank booth at the de Vere’s St. Patrick’s Day Party in the Park at Cesar Chavez Plaza.

“We are passing out free beads, hats and candy,” Garner said. “We brought over 3,000 beads and over 1,000 hats.”

The Cesar Chavez Plaza was fenced and inside a St. Patrick’s Day celebration was in full effect.

Bar stools, green and white balloons, a huge Guinness beer balloon were among the decorations that surrounded the place.

People of all age groups came out to celebrate. Many men and women dressed in traditional Irish attire such as kilts, knee-high socks and plaid skirts.

In front of the stage people clapped along to music and danced freely by swinging their hands or pairing up with others and twirling in circles.

The atmosphere was occasionally filled with sudden bursts of laughter, cheering or phrases such as “Happy St.Patrick’s Day”

Various booths were present, ranging from Guinness beer booths, whiskey booths, radio station booths such as that of 106.5 (The Buzz, 90s buzz) to photo and food booths.

Between the live music from the stage and people’s conversations, the delicious smell of food dominated the park.

The traditional Irish dish of corned beef and cabbage was on many people’s must-eat list.

Kate Petros and Ross Lee came from La Riviera and Watt neighborhood for the celebration.

Although they celebrated St.Patrick’s at de Vere’s Irish pub last year, it is their first time at the park.

“I am looking forward to eating corned beef cabbage,” Lee said. “St. Patrick’s Day means Guinness, good Irish music, friends and fun.”

Brad Cecchi, executive chef at Grange (restaurant and bar) served house made Irish sausages with pickled vegetables and Irish cheddar on soft rolls at the Party in the Park.

“We are prepared to sell 1,200 sausages,” Cecchi said.
