Everyone is Irish for a day when St. Patrick's Day comes around, including Providence Mayor Angel Taveras.
Taveras brought city hall to life today has he hosted the city's annual Saint Patrick's Day Celebration on the second and third floor of the city hall.
Traditional Irish music and dancers brought the luck of the Irish to city hall and Rhode Island's Attorney General Peter Kilmartin delivered the keynote address.
"Growing up as an Irish-American in Pawtucket, my parents taught my brothers and me to be proud of our heritage and instilled in us a strong sense of the values of faith, family and community," said Kilmartin. "The values that I trace to my great-grandparents who emigrated from Northern Ireland and have been passed down by my grandparents and parents guide me each and every day as Attorney General."
The festivities also included a bagpipe procession by the Providence Police Department Pipes and Drums and an Irish Step Dance by the Goulding School of Irish Dance.
