The annual March of the Leprechauns was held in downtown Riverhead on Saturday.
A dozen local businesses participated in the popular pub crawl, which benefits the East End Emerald Society and the Peconic Ballet Foundation. The event, now in its second year, raised money through the sale of $10 bracelets which allow participants to receive deals at local bars and restaurants.
The East End Emerald Society will host the Jamesport St. Patrick’s Day parade, set for March 19 at 2 p.m.
