TIGNISH -- A common ball tournament will start and end this year’s Irish Heritage Festival of P.E.I. The tournament will be played on the Tignish ball fields starting Thursday at 6 p.m. and concluding Sunday with the championship game on Hogan Field.

Lots of music and other activities are also part of the Tignish-based festival.

The West Prince Arts Council is sponsoring a Heritage Evening with author and publisher Clint Morrison Thursday at 7 p.m. at the St. Felix Community Centre.

Friday’s schedule takes place at the legion with trivia at 7 p.m. and a pub night with Blair and Marcella Gaudet at 9:30 p.m.

Saturday is the festival’s busiest day. It starts with a 5 and 10K Shamrock Run which leaves from the Legion at 9 a.m. There’s also a Lucky Leprechaun golf tournament at St. Felix where a hole in one on number 7 could earn someone a 2014 Dodge truck.

There’s a Geo-scavenger hunt Saturday afternoon and then the focus shifts back to the legion for a Stompin Tom tribute from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. and a pub night with Misty Waters from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Mass for the Irish Sunday at 11 a.m. and the common ball tournament's championship game at 1 p.m. complete the schedule.
