It’s nearly time for St. Patrick’s Day and the traditional Irish Days festivities in Lakeview once again, and the Irish Days Committee is on the search for wee ones interested in serving as the 2013 Wee Leprechaun.
An upcoming random drawing will determine this year’s Wee Leprechaun, and the contest is open to youngsters between the ages of 3 and 5 years of age. Entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28, and the winner will be drawn and notified on Friday, March 1.
The Wee Leprechaun will receive a savings account with Sterling Bank with $25 deposited, and also get to ride in the Irish Days parade with the Grand Leprechaun. This year’s parade will be held on Saturday, March 16, at 11 a.m. in the downtown area.
