Killarney's St. Paddy's Day Festival is easily the longest running, biggest St. Patrick's Day party in southwest Riverside County. The party starts early this year at Killarney's with the Keg & Eggs event starting at 7 a.m.

It's not an official holiday, but Americans celebrate St. Patrick's Day more vigorously than actual American holidays – making everyone Irish for a day.

The Day of the Festival of Patrick is celebrated on the traditional death date of Saint Patrick, considered the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

The story of how Americans came to celebrate life of an Irish saint who died in 461 isn't quite clear, but we've been doing it since the late 18th century.

We'll do it again this year, with events located all over Southern California.
