3. Light a Fire on the Mountain: A Celtic Odyssey

Discover the legend of St. Patrick at a special concert from Packard Playhouse, 614 N. Main St.

“Light a Fire on The Mountain: A Celtic Odyssey” takes place on Saturday from 7pm.

Legend has it that when St. Patrick landed on the pagan shores of Ireland, where the rule was that only Druids were allowed to light a fire on the high mountain, facing death, St. Patrick climbed the high mountain and lit the fire in the name of Christ.

The show will feature music inspired by the story of St. Patrick, with fiery violins, soulful voices and a range of ensembles featuring young artists from across the US.

Tickets are $20 for general admission, $30 for VIP admission and $12 for children and can be purchased at www.PackardPlayhouse.com.
