Generations of gene-swapping has rendered most of us ethnic mutts. Still, we all saw how those "Everyone Loves an Irish Girl" shirts at Urban Outfitters sold like last month's Maxim, so we know you proud Gaelic lassies exist. Grab that special laddie and embrace your ancestry at the twelfth annual Colorado Irish Festival even if it doesn't come with a bust-hugging tee.
Tonight, get your feet stomping at Clement Park, South Pierce Street at Bowles Avenue in Littleton, at the Cowboy Ceili concert from 6 to 9 p.m. Tomorrow and Sunday you can immerse yourself from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. in everything Irish, including authentic food, dancing and live music from the Bridies, whose repertoire includes Lord of the Dance. "They are not just pretty faces; they can really play," promises event coordinator Pat McCullough.
Admission to the concert is $5; tickets to the fest are $10 in advance, $12 at the door, and free for children twelve and younger. Go to www.coloradoirishfestival.org or call 303-561-4007.
Fri., July 7, 6-9 p.m.; July 8-9, 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
