The hallmark of DeLand’s Shamrocks & Shenanigans event March 16 at Earl Brown Park was the corned beef cook-off. Attendees paid $5 for a voting wristband and a single plastic shamrock. After tasting each of the seven corned beef entrants, visitors cast their shamrock as their vote for the winner. At the end of the event, the winner took home the money collected by Wayne G. Sanborn Activity Center staffers Lysette Santiago and Leslie Kirkpatrick, which was a whopping $865 by the end of the night.
