The Grand Prairie AirHogs are kicking off the beginning of their 2011 ticket sales on Thursday, March 17, with a free St. Patty O’Party. Come to QuikTrip Park from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. to take part in the festivities, which includes running the bases, bounce houses, music from authentic Celtic bands, and the chance to buy specially priced AirHogs ticket packages.

They’ll also offer a special (cheap!) St. Patrick’s Day menu, with green beer and fresh-off-the-grill hamburgers and hot dogs for $1 each. Kids and dogs are welcome to attend.

QuikTrip Park is at 1600 Lone Star Parkway in Grand Prairie.
