Watertown to go green as Irish festival returns

Runners take off in the 2019 Shamrock Run as part of Watertown’s Irish festival, which is returning this month for the first time in three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Alec Johnson/Watertown Daily Times

WATERTOWN — For years, the North Country Goes Green festival always kicked off with the raising of the Irish flag in front of the Dulles State Office Building.

But the flag raising won’t be happening there when the festival returns next weekend after a three-year absence because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
