How do you make a huge party?  Start with a small one and add the word Irish to it, like the North Texas Irish Festival.

“This festival started as a result of a big party in 1983.  This festival (now) attracts about 75,000 people a year or more.  We have ten stages of music, probably about forty musical groups, dancers, storytelling” said Betsy Cummings of the musical group Skeleton McKee.
