Looking for some fun on St. Patrick's Day? Hundreds of people are expected to visit Saint Patrick, Missouri Thursday.
Many of them for the special cancellation stamp, others will want to see the Shrine of Saint Patrick.
The Shrine was dedicated back in 1957 and constructed with stain glass windows made in Dublin Ireland.
There is also a round tower in the church, the only one in America.
The town likes to keep with tradition and celebrates Saint Patrick's day as a religious holiday like they did in old time Ireland. Click here for more historical information.
Throughout the day, you can enjoy Irish food and music while walking through the gift shop.
