GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Irish on Ionia is set to kick off on Saturday. Tickets are $15 at the door. All the presale tickets are already sold out. Those who run the festival say it's the biggest in the state.

WZZM 13's Sarah Barwacz previewed the event at McFadden's by learning how to pour a proper Guinness, cooking Irish tacos, and learning about a fundraiser for kids related to the event.

The Conklin Celli Band also serenaded us throughout the morning news as well.
