Greening the City

St. Patrick’s Festival launched its Greening the City initiative in 2011, asking businesses, landmark buildings, entertainment venues and cultural institutions to Go Green with outdoor lighting, for the duration of the Festival. Last year was a huge success with so many premises go green, lighting up the city in celebration of the Festival, and this year we’re hoping to be even bigger!
