Hundreds celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in the Lafayette area

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in the Lafayette area ranged from making traditional Irish food to enjoying live music at an Irish pub.

On Monday, hundreds enjoyed the final day of the St. Patrick’s Fest at Nine Irish Brothers. Irish food, kilts and live music were some of the festivities on tap for St. Patrick’s Day.

Celtic rock group Mother Grove played Monday afternoon at Nine Irish Brothers in Lafayette. Vocalist Brad Sprauer said they started playing on St. Patrick’s Day 14 years ago.

“Most of us are Scottish decent, but St. Patrick was Scottish anyway. So we are all one Celtic blood on St. Patrick’s Day — the Scots, the Irish, and the Welsh,” said Sprauer.

“I’m from Kansas and St. Patty’s day is a big tradition of getting together with friends, having a good time and bringing out the Irish,” said Jennifer Phipps, who celebrated St. Patrick’s Day.

Nine Irish Brothers locations in both West Lafayette and Lafayette have live music Monday until 10 p.m.
