Irish fest draws huge crowd to Adams Corner
Oct. 11, 2010
An estimated 10,000 people— and perhaps many more than that— attended yesterday's Irish Heritage Festival in Adams Corner. The second annual event featured two stages of music and dancing, vendors, outdoor dining and more — all geared towards a massive celebration of Irish culture. The family-friendly crowd swelled well beyond the large turnout of the inaugural street fest in 2009. The event included traditional Irish music as well as rock-oriented acts, including the U2 cover band The Joshua Tree, which took the main stage at 7 p.m.
Organizer Sean Weir told the Reporter that a large crowd had assembled in the village by 9:30 a.m.— a half-hour before the event actually started.
