If the green shamrocks don’t get your attention, the quick pinch from lack of green on your attire surely will.
An early St. Patrick’s Day celebration is planned for Saturday in Portales.

A musical and family oriented celebration will be held from 5-7 p.m. at the Memorial Building on East Seventh Street.
This is the second annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration held by the city of Portales’ Cultural Affairs Committee, said project coordinator Lillie Trabal.

“We try to hold an event for all of the cultural holidays and last year this event was headed up by Elizabeth Galligan but she is not with us this year,” Trabal said.
