Jacksonville Landing Turns Green for St. Patrick's Day

Jacksonville Landing Turns Green for St. Patrick's Day

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A leprechaun appeared at the Landing this morning to help get the city ready to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and he helped turn the water green.

As the holiday had its official launch, the fountain in the courtyard began spewing green water, which will continue through the weekend as events are planned for each day.

At today's launch, the leprechaun read a proclamation, which was drowned out by the nearby bagpiper.

Thursday, bagpipers from Jacksonville Pipes and Drums will roam about the Landing as happy hour gets underway at 4 p.m., featuring, of course, green beer.

Live music takes the stage beginning at 7 and lasting until midnight.

Contests include hourly drawings for cash for anyone wearing green and there will be a green bikini contest at 9 p.m.
