St. Paddy's Dash gets under way at 5 p.m.
YOUNGSTOWN — Are you up for the dash?
The city will host its first St. Paddy’s Downtown Dash starting at 5 p.m. today at the B&O Station Banquet Hall, 530 Mahoning Ave.
“With it being the Friday before, we won’t be competing with the traditional St. Patrick’s Day events,” said Lyndsey Hughes, director of downtown events.
Participants will receive a wrist band that will get them drink specials at 15 restaurants and bars downtown, said Hughes.
The first 200 people to register will get a free St. Paddy’s Day Dash shirt, she said.
Cost of the event is $7 or $5 with a donation of nonperishable food items to the Gleaners Food Bank. Hughes said $2 of the nondonors fee will also be donated to the food bank.
