The second annual St Paddy’s Day Go Green Run & Festival will be held March 15, from 10AM to 2PM at the Harbor History Museum at Donkey Creek Park. This includes an option of a run or walk and many events like a raffle. The event will raise money for Peninsula High School and primarily for DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) to attend nationals in Orlando, Florida. Last year the event raised approximately $10,000 and is now the event that raises the second most amount of money for the school, the first being Winterfest. To register for the event go to
