More than 100 residents enjoyed traditional Irish fare, dancing and music at a celebrated New Canaan tradition Sunday evening.

The Kiwanis Club of New Canaan’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner and Social featured dinner plates of corned beef and cabbage, potatoes and carrots, kids meals for the children, ice cream and a special sweet green concoction to mark the holiday at St. Aloysuis School.

“The best part about it is the dancers,” said club President B.J. Flagg, who described her working role as “front of kitchen.”

Dancers (and a terrific singer) from Anam Kara Irish Dance School and Pender Keady Academy of Irish Dance entertained the crowd, which ranged from very small children to grandmas and grandpas. See video above (and stay tuned for a special spotlight coming in Tuesday’s “Did You Hear … ?” on a New Canaan dog who will mark his birthday on St. Patrick’s Day proper).

Here are some photos from the dinner. It was sponsored by Walter Stewart’s Market, Hoyt Funeral Home, New Canaan Chamber of Commerce, Baskin Robbins of New Canaan, Harrigan Insurance, Nurenu Brand Marketing and GoGo Fit.
