OCEANPORT -

Residents were able to spend the beautiful Sunday weather outside at the Irish Festival at Monmouth Park in Oceanport.

There was Irish dancing, crafts, food, drinks and plenty of Irish music at the 49th annual Irish Heritage Festival. Several bands were even from Ireland.

The human horse race is one of the favorites events at the festival.

The weather was perfect for the festival with bright blue skies and comfortable temperatures in the mid-70s.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Alzheimer's research.
