All Things Irish

We gained a day last month and we’re losing an hour Sunday morning. Still, it’s important to make time for fun.

The All Irish Boutique is returning to Rocky River this weekend. Admission is free for this event, which will include a variety of vendors. You’ll find items to show your Irish and/or Cleveland pride, including mugs, glasses and handmade signs.

You’ll also find vendors selling baked goods, tea, shirts, art, accessories and home decor. One vendor is selling sauces and condiments that are sugar free and gluten free. Another is selling dog biscuits.

The event is taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Rocky River Memorial Hall, 21012 Hilliard Blvd. Remember that 11 a.m. will arrive an hour earlier on Sunday than it will on Saturday because we’re “springing ahead” at 2 a.m. 

Entertainment on Saturday will feature performances by dance troupes beginning at 11 a.m. You’ll be sure to see some Irish dancing.

I went to this event last year and bought a few gifts and some delicious scones and jam. I was surprised by the number of vendors and the wide variety of goods for sale. The event was well attended but not overly crowded, at least when my friend Tonya and I were there. 

Parking might be a challenge. Memorial Hall shares a parking area with a few other buildings, including the rec center, the police station and the senior center. Be patient as you look for a spot. People will be coming and going all day.
