  1. These are fantastic St. Patrick’s Day photos from the Tracey’s Annual Block Party and the Irish Channel Block Party at Annunciation Park! Thanks for sharing them. The costumes and green jello shots look very nice.

    That’s great how the proceeds from the Irish Channel Block Party at Annunciation Park were going to benefit St. Michael’s Special School.
