Celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and our love of our pets combine in downtown Ellijay this Saturday. The annual “St. Petrick’s Day” activities begin with a pet parade, lining up at City Hall from noon to 1 p.m. and a Blessing of the Pets just before 1. After the parade down North Main, around the roundabout, and back up North Church Street, the fun goes on with pet contests and children’s activities.
Then the celebration on North Main Street will feature craft vendors, Irish food, live music, and corn hole. Come walk with your pet for $5, which goes to the Friends of Gilmer County Animal Shelter . For more information visit Downtown Ellijay on Facebook or call 706.635.2782.
