St. Patrick's Day is Monday, but there were celebrations all weekend long across the Twin Cities.

Over in St. Paul at the Landmark Center the "Irish Day of Dance" continued Monday, featuring traditional music, fancy footwork, and traditional Irish cuisine. The two-day Irish event started Sunday.

Also in downtown St. Paul, the annual St. Patrick's Day parade was held at noon Monday.

Another parade will be held in downtown Minneapolis after work. That parade marches down Nicollet Mall starting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday.

If you imbibe in a little too much St. Paddy's Day fun, all Metro Transit buses will offer free rides starting Monday night at 6 p.m., courtesy of Miller Lite.

Keep an eye out for a green food truck; Finnegans Beer is collecting food for local food shelves. Their reverse food truck has been out and about all weekend long.
