You may not think much happens in a traditionally Scandinavian twn on St. Patricks Day but in Hayward, Wi it is a glorious and fun day.
It starts with Steve and Grandson's Colin and Gavin playing bagpipes at area schools, senior center and nursing homes. Grandson Darby marched when he was little but in his teenage years now so he may pick it up again in the future
These little boys just picked up the pipes on their own and march and perform like professionals. The really draw ooohs and aaaahs from the crowd and contribute to the fun of St. Patricks Day.
On the day, in the evening Steve picks up with Molly and the Danger Band at the Pavilion in Hayward and from there they pub crawl to Karbs, Vets Center and Anglers and finish the night at the Pavilion. Playing jigs, reels, well known Irish tunes, the crowd really gets into the music. So even if people are not Irish or just a little Irish, they enjoy St. Patrick's Day in Hayward. Every year gets bigger and better. Make plans next year to join us. You will have fun.
