The Erie Seawolves season is right around the corner, but that didn't stop them from getting in the spirit on Saint Patrick's Day.

The first ever Hoops and Hops happened all day Friday. The free event included drink specials and traditional Irish meal deals.
Fans could also enjoy March Madness games while celebrating the Irish holiday.

Guests were eligible to win Seawolves prizes through the night, including tickets to opening night. There was also limited edition St. Patty's Seawolves gear available for purchase as well.

The UPMC Park Stadium club housed the event, which is one of the newest meeting spots in Erie, perfect for hosting events all summer long.
