Over 1,000 people celebrated in the streets and venues of Fairfax last weekend. No, it wasn't another Fax Fest. It was Fairfax Feis (pronounced 'fesh'). 

The first annual Irish music festival filled six venues around town and kicked off a lively weekend with a parade of bagpipers down Broadway and Bolinas.

When he went in to a packed Sorella's, Smadbeck said, "the whole place was singing Alive, Alive-O!"
