St. Paddy's Day Dash drawing crowds to downtown tonight

YOUNGSTOWN

Everyone’s Irish during St. Patrick’s Day weekend. And that worked to the advantage of city business owners.

People came from surrounding areas to participate in the annual St. Paddy’s Day Dash. Businesses in and around downtown offered discounts and specials to those who paid $2 or donated a canned food item to the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley.

“It’s a nice community event and I think it’s nice to see people participating in something in the downtown area,” said Anne Massullo Sabella, co-owner of the recently opened Avalon Downtown. “I think a lot of people haven’t even ventured down here yet and don’t realize what is going on down here.”

This is the first time the business owner has had an opportunity to participate in a downtown event.

The Lemon Grove took part in a similar event at Halloween, said co-owner Ed Moses.

“It was very successful, so we wanted to get involved again,” he said. “It brings people into downtown. We want to see the crowds coming down here, and people come here and party and see what’s going on.”

Visitors to the dash have a chance to see first-hand how safe Youngstown is and how much it has to offer, he said.

““There’s an excitement," Moses said. "You got nine bars down here. You could keep on going all night. Park your car and just keep on walking.”

That was the plan for a group from Hubbard.

Nine bars in the area and the Vindy only features two? The Headline of the article should say "Lemon Grove is top hangout for Hagan and Vindy staff". There are other much better bars in the downtown area to write about.
