Great Lakes Irish Music Festival held at Fifth Third Ball Park,

this Saturday August 22, 2009  11:00 am – 9:20 pm

There will also be Irish markets and  workshops devoted to Irish music,

history and it’s language that will be available for participants.  A

Children’s Area will be provided by the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum
