Local pubs and Irish restaurants held St. Patrick's Day celebrations Wednesday after waiting a year since the pandemic shutdown.
Rory's in Darien had a year to plan for the holiday - with a lot to celebrate. The owner says people can dine outside and that they had live music and Irish Step Dancers for entertainment on a stage.
At Castle on Post, people started drinking Guinness beer at noon, and the restaurant has plexiglass up and spaced out tables to protect patrons.
Many restaurants took a big hit this past year, so business owners say they want to make sure it is a special celebration this holiday.
In Stamford, the Fairfield County police pipes and drums started playing inside a window storefront then marched down Bedford Street. Families say they were excited to be able to celebrate this year.
COVID-19 restrictions in bars are set to relax this Friday. Inside capacity can be at 100% while maintaining some social distancing.
