Sherman Group Holds St. Patrick's Block Party

SHERMAN, TX -- It's not often you find anyone at the Grayson County Courthouse on a Saturday night, but on this night there was a big party there.

The Downtown Sherman Preservation and Revitalization group held a block party on the front lawn of the courthouse in Sherman.

About 800 people turned out last year, and they hope this year's crowd will match up, says DSP&R member Jenel McGrath. There was music, food, and drink, and plenty of people wearing green.

There was a "wine stroll" that McGrath says sold out its tickets and the band Beyond the Pale performed. This is the fourth year that the group has held the event, which moved from last year's location on East Wall Street.

Organizers say they hope he party will help draw more attention downtown.
