Kiss the Blarney Stone in Merville

Pucker up and get ready to kiss the Blarney Stone at the St. Patrick’s Day Contra Dance

Pucker up and get ready to kiss the Blarney Stone at the St. Patrick’s Day Contra Dance at the Big Yellow Merville Hall in beautiful, downtown Merville, the emerald green capital of the Comox Valley.

This Saturday, bring along a four-leaf clover, some lucky charms and kick up your pointy-toed green shoes to the Contra Dance tunes of the O’Funtime Fiddlers.

The fiddlers, with their leprechaun friends, will have you bewitched as they pluck the strings for your dancing pleasure while our dance caller, June O’Cannon, keeps the dancers spinning  and reaching for that elusive pot of gold.

Before the dance, from 7 to 7:30, there will be a free Contra workshop as well as some instruction in basic waltz patterns.

For details, phone 250-339-4249.
