    NEW LONDON DUBLIN, Wis. (WLUK) -- Green is the color of the week, as New London has ceremonially changed its name to New Dublin for St. Patrick's Day.

    A band of leprechauns was spotted throughout the city Monday, changing welcome signs to read "New Dublin."

    The annual "New Dublin" celebration includes special events throughout the week.

    The week culminates with the New Dublin Irish Fest from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, which includes the St. Patrick’s Day Grand Parade at 1 p.m. Those events are held in the city's downtown.
