BALLY, Pa. -

The luck of the Irish has arrived in Berks County.

The 39th annual Irish Wake at the Bally Hotel is now underway.

Organizers say they expect 6,000 people to attend through St. Patrick's Day on Sunday.

And those visitors will bring their appetites with them. Organizers will go through around 120 pounds of chicken breast and 85 kegs of beer.
