One group visiting from downstate was visiting the Evening Post for some food and drinks. They say they’ve rented out eight rooms at the Doherty Hotel and have been coming to Clare for St. Patrick’s Day for nearly 20 years.


“If you’re not here you’re missing out. I tell everybody they got to go to Clare. It’s another beautiful part of Michigan,” they say.

The fun wraps up Saturday with more events and their St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
