It's an annual celebration which brings hundreds to downtown Wichita Falls, the annual Saint Patrick's Day Street Festival.
And for one couple that celebration is less about the Irish and more about a journey to survival.
It was in 2011 when Leroy Munoz found out about some serious health problems.
But it was the memories of one Saint Patty's Day Festival that would help to bring back his health.
A Los Lonely Boys tune played last year during the Saint Patrick's Day Downtown Street Festival in Wichita Falls, is a tune one couple will never forget.
Leroy Munoz and Narda Henderson in the audience that day, but little did they know how the song would help Munoz over the next 12 months.
In August Munoz received a liver transplant for Cirrhosis of the liver.
During the transplant doctors discovered that Munoz had Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a rare form of Pulmonary Hypertension which made his recovery a long and strenuous one.
In an effort to ease his pain his fiance tried doing something creative.
"And while he was in the hospital kind of out of it I laid the Ipad close to his head and played the music," said Henderson
"It gave him that sense of comfort and he was familiar with it, he knew that he had been there, somewhere in there he knew there was home and there was a place to go," she said.
"It's like I will listen to the radio and hear an old song, and they really really get me going," Munoz said.
Months later Munoz is back home, with scars that remind him of his long road to recovery.
And though he still wears an infusion pump to give him medication he needs for his Pulmonary Hypertension, Leroy and Narda know they have a second chance.
"He has a new lease on life and he appreciates it, i mean not a lot of people get to chance in this world and he has gotten a fair share of chance in this world," he said.
The couple already has backstage passes to this year's Saint Patrick's Day Festival and say it will be a celebration of life, friends, and their relationship because they actually met during the annual event years ago.
This year's festival will be this Saturday it begins at 4:30 pm.
Gotise will take the stage at 5:30 pm.
Followed by The Gourds, Josh Weathers, and the headliner the Killdares.
