EHM looks into history behind St. Patrick's Day


Now that the holiday of hearts is behind us, it's time to look forward to the one that makes everything green.

St. Patrick's Day is almost here.  But who really was St. Patrick?  The Ethnic Heritage Museum is helping people learn just that.

It's exhibit opened today in the Irish gallery of the museum.

Visitors learned about the saint and how the St. Patrick Church and the Irish Marching Society celebrate the day.
