Being half Irish, I ,for one, love to celebrate St. Patty's Day and may I say that is is always nice to have your very own Leprechaun in the family.

Mom, dad, aunts, uncles and grandparents get ready to dress your little leprechaun up for a chance to win cash for your classroom.

Pug Mahon's and the Downtown Billings Alliance are again sponsoring the Little Leprechaun Contest.

This is a program aiming to benefit classrooms in School District 2.

Students in the first and second grade can register for the contest and walk in the parade on Saturday, March 19th dressed as leprechauns.

The groups will be judged on the "cutest" costumes and $200 cash prizes will be given to the top five classrooms represented.

To register you little Leprechaun visit the Downtown Billings website here.
