A local company, SB Marketing, is hoping for the luck of the Irish. It's March. So that means Irish celebrations are underway. Festivities got started Saturday with the Shamrock Run and will continue through March.
SB Marketing is a visual communications company that is out with a very visual hat just in time for St. Patrick's Day. They are promoting the cowboy style hats to bars and restaurants in the area that are selling them this month.
Cathy Lang with SB Marketing says she expects them to be very popular. "I have a feeling you'll go to the parade and you'll see the hats all around," she said. "There's a few restaurants and bars that have them already and are selling them like Pearl Street Grill, McCarthy's, The Blackthorn. And The Blackthorn will have custom hats as well for their business."
SB Marketing designed the hats for Beer Hats on Grand Island. "They wanted to do something different and more family oriented, something they could use for events and holidays," Lang said. "So SB Marketing created the design and worked with Beer Hats to market the hat." Both companies are promoting them this month for a limited time only.
