Saturday should be a fine day to remember the Emerald Isle.  St. Patrick's Day may be Monday, but the celebration begins in earnest this weekend in South Jersey, with parades, parties, and the annual St. Patrick's Day Boardwalk Run through Downbeach.

Good weather is forecast for Saturday, and Lite Rock will be right in the middle of all the fun, for the run and the parade to follow.  We hope to see you Saturday in A C!
