St. Patrick's Day Festival Returns to Alton

Story by WBGZ Radio

You are invited to come to Downtown Alton again this year to celebrate St. Patrick's Day a few days early.  The holiday is always on March 17th, but a number of Alton bars have come together to celebrate the holiday early from noon - 7pm on March 11th.

Portions of State Street, 3rd Street and Belle Street Downtown were closed to traffic last year, but Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau President Brett Stawar tells The Big Z that will not be the case this year.

Most downtown bars, plus the Argosy Casino and Johnson's Corner on State Street are on the tour.  Some of the bars will have live music during the event.
