I love St. Patrick's Day (with scenes from the fest at Maguires Hill)

Old men wearing kilts and babies dressed as leprechauns hop across a dance floor to the tune of a timeless refrain. That's why I love St. Patrick's Day: The music's contagious and the people are all smiles. At Maguires Hill 16 this Sunday, March 17, I got my fill of red beards and green hats. My favorite characters are the older people who go all-out with makeup, beads and apparel. One man asked, "Don't you also want to get my green shoes?" when I tried taking a picture of just his and his wife's faces. You'll see him in this slideshow. --Maria Murriel
