St. Patrick’s Day celebration

On a night that would ordinarily be a busy one for Bethlehem area restaurants and pubs, downtown Bethlehem was eerily silent on St. Patrick’s Day. A stroll along Main Street revealed many announcements on the doors of businesses due to, at that time, the recommended closures of non- essential businesses because of the coronavirus health threat.

An overflow crowd attended and the event’s theme took root in the late Sam Cooke’s song, “A Change is Gonna Come.”
