The St. Patrick’s Day Festival, Downtown Myrtle Beach
March 16th, 2013 (the day before the official holiday) Myrtle Beach will be covered in Green for St. Patrick’s Day. Celebrations will be held downtown, so you’ll be near all of the restaurants, shops, the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, and lots of other entertainment and fun activities that will be going on that Saturday.
There will be plenty of sights and sounds, including a wild “KidzZone” and many live performances. The Paul Grimshaw Band will be playing at the event. The Syracuse born former radio host turned musician and his group are scheduled to play at 4:30 pm until around 6:00 pm. Also, upcoming rock band Weaving The Fate will be performing, a group that has been getting a lot of spins on Sirius/XM stations recently. Other performances that day will be from the New York Shields Pipes and Drums (who performed “Amazing Grace” in Myrtle Beach last summer in the video shown below) and the Myrtle Beach Regional Pipe and Drum Band, two bands who are certainly fitting for a St. Patrick’s Day extravaganza like this one!
Don’t forget to wear green to the festivities! I remember when I was in school, as part of the St. Patrick’s Day tradition, we would pinch anyone who didn’t have on green (my friends and I still do this now). I don’t even think we knew why we were doing it…we just found it fun to spread the word about who didn’t have on the color, so that when people saw that person around the halls, they’d remember what we said and forcibly pinch ‘em. By the end of the day, the poor guy more than likely found a green ribbon, wristband or something green, and made sure everybody saw it!
I recently learned that the real color for the holiday is actually blue. According to this WRDW Augusta News report, there are many other fun and interesting facts that folks don’t know about the holiday. Click on the news link and check them out!
We here at The Caravelle Resort wish you a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day. Have fun at the downtown celebration!
