Irish to the gills, Keith O’Brien wears a plaid kilt for the Heritage Day celebration in Rice. In the photo above, he greets Rice resident Scott Heilig, a member of the Rice Area Lions Club. O’Brien and his wife, Kristi, started Heritage Day and its parade many years ago. As owners of O’Brien’s Pub and Grill, they offer Irish stew, green beer, music, fun and prizes into the wee hours.
