With the end of February fast approaching, some folks on Navy Pier kicked off the countdown to St. Patrick's Day Sunday.

The pier's Crystal Garden was transformed into an emerald wonderland of Irish and Celtic entertainment.

There were musical performances as well as traditional Irish culinary delights.

It's all part of getting ready for St. Patty's Day on March 17, less than three weeks away.
