We still have saggy jack-o-lanterns on the porch here at Irish Fest HQ but the holidays are approaching fast, ready or not. No better way to start the crazy season than at The Harvest Céilí this Friday at the Kansas City Irish Center. Irish dancing, food, drink, a holiday craft market, and a pie walk. The ladies from Céilí at the Crossroads will teach you the basics of céilí dancing beginning at 6:00. Free for kids and Irish Center members, only $5 for the rest of yiz.
Happy Halloween! And as if there weren't enough scary things going on today, here's one more: TODAY IS YOUR LAST DAY TO APPLY FOR A 2020 IRISH FEST GRANT!!
