ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN JULY RETURNS THIS SUNDAY AT MONMOUTH
It’s time to break out the green for the annual St. Patrick’s Day in July celebration at Monmouth Park this Sunday, July 13.
All those “wearin’ o’ the green” will receive free grandstand or half-price clubhouse admission as well as an entry blank to win a trip for two to Ireland. Sponsored by Guinness, the St. Patrick’s Day in July celebration will include the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh Pipe & Drum Band performing on the track and the Bobby Byrne Band playing “On the Green.” In addition, traditional Irish food will be on the menu at concession stands and in restaurants throughout the track.
As always on Sundays at Monmouth Park it’s Family Fun Day, with clowns, pony rides, face painters, bounce houses and more to entertain the kids.
