Macy's Sunday Story Time: St. Patrick's Day!
Sun, March 17th, 2013 | 11:30 am

Recommended for children ages 4–7.

While traveling to America, Fergus whittles the branch of an Irish blackthorn tree into a Shillelagh so he will always have a piece of Ireland with him. This Shillelagh becomes the family’s heirloom and a centerpiece for storytelling each St. Patrick’s Day, just like today!
