To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year, the Landmark Center is hosting two day-long events filled with music, dancing and food. “The Landmark Center is a great spot for these celebrations, because both are quintessentially Saint Paul,” Krissy Schoenfelder of the Landmark says. “It is a tradition for many families, and not just for the adults.”
