PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mayor Daniel Bianchi and the city of Pittsfield will celebrate all things Irish when they hosts visitors representing Pittsfield's Sister City, Ballina.  

The group is coming to Pittsfield to celebrate the relationship the two cities have under the Sister Cities International Program.  Bianchi and his wife, Theresa, will host a welcoming reception for the delegation on Friday, March 14, at noon in the City Council Chambers at City Hall.  

City councilors, former mayors and the public are invited to attend.

Among the events planned, guests and the Pittsfield Irish Sister City members will march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Albany, N.Y.,  enjoy an Irish American Club dinner/dance at the Elk's Club and attend a "Forty Shades of Green Art Show" with a wine and cheese reception at the Lichtenstein Center.

There also will be a dinner show at Mazzeo's Ristorante with Liam Geddes, the 2007 "Irish Idol," performing after dinner.  The evening ends with Andy Kelly and his band performing at Patrick's Pub.

Here are highlights from last year's reception.
