There’s no shortage of events in our area this weekend. From Joseph and the The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat to a St. Patrick's Weekend run.
Messiah United Methodist Church in Plymouth is staging their production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Showtimes are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday with a 2 p.m matinee on Sunday. The show is free but proceeds from a free will offering will go toward local service organizations.
Saint Patrick’s Day is turning into a full weekend at the Claddagh in Maple Grove.
“We're putting a big tent out back this year, so we're going big," said Victor Claffey of the Claddagh. "It’s going to be a good weekend so we're expecting good crowds. We've got a 75 foot tent going down the parking lot. I've got a 16 foot stage. I've got music going from 9:30 AM. We're doing eggs and kegs from 9:30. We're doing eggs and kegs from 9:30 straight through till 2AM.”
Maple Grove is also hosting the St. Patrick’s Irish Traditions 5K on Sunday morning. They’ll end up at, you guessed it, The Claddagh.
As you might imagine the Rince Nua traditional Irish dance team from Maple Grove will be quite busy as well.
“We dance to a lot of reels. They're fun to clap to," said Erin Cooney who owns Rince Nua. "The dancers are just smiling and hopping and jumping for the audience to enjoy their St. Patrick's Day and just try to bring a lot of happiness to everyone on St. Patrick's day with the kids dancing.”
You can catch Rince Nua at McCormick’s Irish Pub in Wayzata at 2 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday.
