Paddy Driscoll has been dubbed The Worst Irish Tenor.

All the fun was held Wednesday night at Mancini's Char House in St. Paul. It was part of the run up to the St. Paddy's Day Parade.

The tradition has been around for 48 years. Driscoll has been involved for 40 years.

On Thursday, Miss Shamrock will be crowned. One of six princesses will be picked. The event happens at 6:30 p.m. at O'Garas in St. Paul. In their bios, the princesses said they like Guinness and Jameson.

The St. Patrick's Day parade will be held at noon on Monday.

The parade travels east to west along 5th Street beginning at Broadway. It will wrap around Rice Park turning south on Washington and east on 4th Street.
