FANWOOD, NJ - The big tent outside Fanwood's historic train station on North Avenue was hopping with action, music and food Saturday, March 23d, as Oh'Brian's Pourhouse hosted its annual St. Patrick's Fundraiser for Fanwood and Scotch Plains youth sports programs.

There was live Irish music, Irish dancing and reduced price food and beer all day with kid-oriented fun as well including face painting and balloon animals. Mayor Colleen Mahr and other local political figures joined Oh'Brian's co-owners Brian Costello and Brian Walter in welcoming the revellers and thanking everyone for their support.

A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Fanwood and Scotch Plains little league and the PAL program.
