Keep Suffolk Beautiful is inviting volunteers to help clean up downtown Suffolk this Saturday, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

The St. Patty’s Day Cleanup will be from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Volunteers will meet in the parking lot of the Godwin Courts Building, 150 N. Main St., for registration starting at 8:45 a.m. No advance registration is required. Grabbers, garbage bags, gloves and safety vests will be provided.

Volunteers will then split into groups and pick up litter on East Washington Street and the surrounding roads until noon.

“If people want to wear something green, that’d be cool,” said Wayne Jones of Suffolk Litter Control and Keep Suffolk Beautiful. “Team up to green up.”

After the cleanup, volunteers can make their way to Brick and Mortar Brewing Company at 212 E. Washington St. and enjoy the brewery’s one-year anniversary celebrations.

The festivities will be from noon to 11 p.m. There will be multiple live music performers, discounted pints, hourly raffles and more. Several Hampton Roads food trucks will also be there.
