DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Flanagan’s Pub was full of Irish spirit Monday.
Tents were set up outside for revelers to celebrate its biggest day of the year.
It was the pub’s 38th year of holding Saint Patrick’s Day festivities, but it was the first year without beloved pub owner, Pat Flanagan, who died in December after losing his battle with cancer.
“We’re very fortunate. My husband left a wonderful legacy of celebrating and enjoying on a day when everybody’s Irish,” said Melissa Flanagan, pub owner.
The pub expects up to 3,000 people to make a stop there throughout the day.
