The shenanigans begin with Saturday's ShamROCK street fest

For the 25th time, the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation brings another edition of Shamrock — six blocks of downtown’s best real estate carpeted with emerald green turf, dotted with roving performers, games and contests, and three stages. On the Pint Stage, six solid performance bands bring every genre from Celtic folk to Irish punk to straight up rock. On the Pub and Clover stages, 10 professional DJs mix a variety of moods and grooves — all guaranteed danceable. Additionally, the Shamrock wristband includes no cover charge and food and drink specials (posted online) at 25 bars and restaurants.

ShamROCK: 2 p.m. to midnight Saturday. The event entrance is at Fifth Avenue and G Street. A general admission ticket starts at $50 (save $5 with advance purchase); various upgrades are available for $7-$30. sandiegoshamrock.com
