Greet old friends, 12 p.m.

Once the procession disbands, the real party starts at Vets. The Irish Family Reunion is a veritable who's who of local shamrock culture. In a giant meeting hall, families reserve tables and bring food for a picnic lunch. If you're just stopping by, you'll see live step dancing and hear bagpipers serenade the sons and daughters of Erin. Admission costs $10 at the door.
