The St Patrick’s Festival is in its 11th year and has grown to encompass a week of Irish entertainment. But it all culminates in the big day today, with events spreading across Auckland City.
The hub of the action is the Muddy Farmer on Wyndham St. The road is closed with opening time at 7.30am for an Irish buffet breakfast and the obligatory pint of Guinness. The pub is hosting various live music and dance acts throughout the day.
