St. Patrick’s Day in Wolfville brought on some celebrations that ran amuck.
Two inebriated young women got into a fight at Acadia University at 2:28 a.m. and spent the night in jail.
At 1:30 p.m., the RCMP called in assistance from New Minas to shut down a large party at an apartment on Linden Avenue. Over 100 people were in attendance and the noise could be heard as far away as Main Street.
At 4:17 p.m., there were two calls about three males inside a vacant building on Prospect Street. They were breaking windows.
That evening, another young woman was found heavily intoxicated on Gaspereau Avenue and had to be sent to hospital.
The owner of Harvest Gallery on Main Street said she was struck by “the scourge of the Irish” about 1:45 a.m. on March 18.
An eight by six foot sheet of plate glass had been broken, damaging the floor and embedding glass in the frames of some artwork. The window is worth $3,000.
Lynda MacDonald said she does not understand why excess revelry occurs on March 17, but called the broken window “an absolutely frigging nuisance” to her landlords and her business.
Patrons of a nearby drinking establishment often congregate and smoke near the door to Harvest Gallery.
