• Rollin' on the green river for St. Patrick's Day


    The U.S. National Whitewater Center will bring a touch of Ireland to its waters for the 10th annual Green River Revival on Saturday, March 16.

    >> Charlotte goes green with St. Patrick's Parade and Festival

    Festivities kick off with the Color Me Green 5K Trail Run at 10 a.m., where participants will need the luck of the Irish to avoid the green dye as they run through the trails.

    At 1 p.m. the whitewaters will be turned as green as a four-leaf clover and live music will follow at 1:15 p.m. 

    Admission to the festival is free; parking cost $6 per car. 

    Blankets and chairs are permitted into the festival.
