LANCASTER, Pa.--  Irish themed establishments in Lancaster carried on St. Patrick's Day traditions on Sunday at the annual King Street Seisiun.

The block party featured live music, Irish dancers, traditional food and beer. Annie Bailey's Irish Pub tells FOX43 the event was made possible by the community and local businesses coming together.

"So this is kind of like the cap to our St. Paddy's Day weekend. It's a great community event, it's a great way for us to engage with local non-profit's that do just basic things for our city," says Joshua Funk, owner of Annie Bailey's Irish Pub.

Proceeds from the event benefit several local non-profit organizations including the Junior League of Lancaster, Lancaster Office of Promotion, Music For Everyone, Lancaster City Alliance, A Week Away and the United Way of Lancaster.
