The Waupaca Community Arts Board’s 14th annual Irish Wake will be held Saturday, March 15.
It will begin at 7 p.m., at Little Fat Gretchen’s and travel to Weasel’s Restaurant around 8 p.m., Paca Pub around 8:45 p.m. and then T-Dub’s Public House at approximately 9:15 p.m.
Participants are encouraged to put on their mourning clothes and walking shoes and to bring instruments. They will follow various musicians, wailers and others on the family friendly pub crawl.
People may add the name of a departed loved one to the Annual Honor Roll, which will be expanded at each stop.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance to add the name of someone.
The tradition also includes adding a memory or thought to the coffin as a way to forgive and move forward.
There will be live acoustic music at each stop and songs books available so everyone may sing along.
