Time Out Melbourne

Another option for both the young and old this St Patrick’s Day is the annual Family Festival, one day early on March 16. Kicking off from midday until 6pm at the Edinburgh Gardens there will be pipers piping and dancers dancing – if it’s Irish, they’ve got it. For the kids, there’s a petting zoo, face painting, sack races, and a photo op with St Patrick himself (kind of). Personally, we're keen for the Van Morrison tribute band.
