To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, part of Granville Street was closed off for Celtic Fest downtown. I didn't stay for too long since it was really crowded but I did managed to take a few pictures with my iPhone. The big attraction was the Irish wolf hounds who were handsome and very friendly with the strangers wanting to pet their heads and take their picture. These dogs are massively tall creatures and really responsive to treats :)
An Irish type of dance/combat skit which involved crossing wooden sticks with your partner.
Hmmm... I'm pretty sure whiskey is the drink of choice for the Irish.
