The first-ever shamrock drop is headed to Carbon County.
Little Gap Square at the Covered Bridge Inn will be the scene for the inaugural event, to be held Thursday through Sunday.
Ron Gilbert, owner, said the event will serve as a follow-up to the New Year's Eve ball drop held at Little Gap Square.
"If you're Irish, be there; if you want to party like the Irish, be there," Gilbert said. "The Irish tradition will be carried on with plenty of authentic Irish cuisine, drink specials, and outstanding Irish entertainment."
