Well, even though St. Patrick’s Day is still a few months away, anytime is a good time to celebrate Irish Culture, Heritage and Pride. Back in 2009 during Labor Day weekend, Long Grove, Illinois was putting on it’s annual Irish Days. This three day celebration included a variety of Irish bands, Irish Dancing, Irish Food, Irish Drink and just about anything Irish could be found at this Long Grove, Illinois staple event - Irish Days. So a lot of Irish music, like I mentioned including some top Irish and Irish-Americans acts. Also there was several Irish and Irish-American authors signing copies of their books. One big highlight, you know Me and this one’s a kicker - an Irish Dog contest. It seemed the all breeds of dogs were Irish breeds, whether they were or not. Of course traditional Irish Wolfhounds were in this contest, as well as cutie pie dogs, but maybe not thought to be Irish at first glance. Also during this event was a Irish Dancing Demonstration. Members of the crowd had the opportunity to learn authentic Irish dances. Visitors for the day had a rare chance to learn some interesting Irish Dance moves. Also there was plenty of activities for the wee little ones.
