One of the biggest parties of the summer, the "luck of the Irish" is in Waterloo this weekend. 

People have been coming in all afternoon, setting up their chairs to get the best view of the stages for the annual Iowa Irish Fest. Around 40,000 people are expected to be here this weekend, that means you'll probably see Iowan's sharing a beer with lots of people from out of state. 

Irish or not, everyone can find something to enjoy here, from learning about black smith forging, to meeting the first Irish Pope. And the popular Screaming Orphans are back this year, performing tonight. Saturday and Sunday is also packed with events throughout the day, including the very popular Gaelic Storm.
