Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- From Sheppard's pie to the soulful sounds of the bagpipe... the music and culture of the Emerald Isle was celebrated last night in Duluth.

Billed as the Northland's largest St. Patrick's Day event, the grand celebration at Clyde Iron Works stayed true to the spirit of the tradition.

Kicking off the fun was an indoor parade, where green clad participants looked to break a record for the shortest St. Patrick's Day Parade route.

"A friend invited me from work to come out and I see why, she loves being Irish, hahah, I have to agree with her,” Thomas Popelka, 110% Irish, said.

Besides a special menu featuring Irish dishes there was also Irish music performed by the group "Ninety to the Dozen" and Fred Dudderar on the bagpipes.
