The 15th annual Irish Fest, scheduled for the Riverfront Green, pivoted quickly to the new Irish pub in downtown and spilled over to the newly relocated Gleason’s next door on Saturday afternoon. The crowds came to the two pubs to listen to music, shop for accessories from the vendors who traditionally come to the Riverfront Green fest and stay dry inside.
