Two Black Rock businesses will come together to host a "Little Irish Village" event Friday for St. Patrick's Day parade revelers.
Park City Music Hall and Tautog Tavern set up on Thursday in the parking lot behind their establishments on Fairfield Avenue.
The owners said they're thrilled the parade migrated to Black Rock and they are very excited about the theme of this event.
"We're promoting a 'Little Irish Village,' so we're going to have music, dancing, we'll have the bands coming by, we'll have vendors, we have face painting," said Tautog Tavern owner Chris Andrews.
"I think it's just a really important cultural event and we're looking forward to making sure that we provide a great atmosphere, a very Irish traditional atmosphere. In fact,it's being called 'an carraig,' which I'm told means 'the rock' in Gaelic," said Park City Music Hall owner John Torres.
The owners said the bar opens at 9 a.m. The "Little Irish Village" opens at 10 a.m. and they urge revelers to come and get a spot early for the parade.
They added that Fairfield Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., but pedestrians are welcome all day long.
