Bill Maine of Boardman has been dressing up as a leprechaun for 15 years. He got the idea from comedian Tim Conway, who stood in a hole but wasn't mobile. Not so for Maine, who dances to rock 'n' roll for a few hours each night as part of the performance. Normally, Maines is 5 foot, 8 inches tall, but when in costume, he's 4 foot tall.
