Finish Line Fun

After a quick run through the beautiful neighborhood of Church Hill the only you'll want is either a glass of water or an ice cold beer, and we'll have both! In addition to quenching your thrist you'll be able to fullfill your need for some good ole Irish fun and culture. The Church Hill Irish Festival will just be getting started as you cross the finish giving you plenty of time to watch the folk dancers, shop, grab some grub, and listen to the great line up of bands and entertainment that are planned for this year.
