Do You Know What Today Is: Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patricks Day is widely celebrated, but do people in our community know the history behind this special day? We ventured out to the streets of downtown Fort Myers to find out.

Today, thousands of people in Southwest Florida deck themselves out in green and spend the day enjoying their pint of choice. However, many of them are not aware of why they are engaging in the annual holiday, much less the facts behind it.

So, we talked to locals in the community to see what they know about today. We asked everything from who Saint Patrick is, to where he was born, and why we wear green.
