Irish and Italian residents and everyone in between celebrated in style at St. Thomas Catholic Church. Thousands of Pine Belt residents decended on the church for a traditional St. Patricks Day meal. The special day started with an early mass and then everyone enjoyed Irish and Italian music, foods and games. The focus of the event is for families. This year St.Thomas included a childrens parade.
