PARADE:
The St. Patrick�s Day Parade is the largest parade on the Grand Strand with over 100 parade entries and a history that is unwavering. Masses of people line Main Street each year to get a glimpse of a magical parade that can only be experienced and not described. The parade begins promptly at 9:00 am, but parade goers rise earlier to patron Main Street establishments in search of warm delights to keep their appetites at bay during the parade.
By 8:30 am most individuals have manned their posts and are eagerly directing family and friends to their �watching station�. Beach chairs, blankets, and golf carts line Main Street awaiting the start of a two-hour phenomenon. Two announcing stations are located along the parade route; in the median at BiLo Shopping Center and at the corner of Hillside Drive and Main Street. If you can't make it to the parade be sure to check out the live broadcast on WPDE TV 15. Ed Piotrowski and others will guide you through a great day of fun.

FESTIVAL:
If a grand parade wasn't enough, waiting at the end of Main Street is a festival you will not want to miss. Over 125 vendors will display their arts and crafts. Food vendors and Main Street businesses will have a variety of treats for everyone to enjoy. Two stages of continuous live entertainment will keep the Irish spirit in you all day. Bring the �wee� ones to enjoy the children�s area that is chocked full of rides and games for all ages. Festivities end at 4 pm, but before you leave, stop by the information tent and purchase a souvenir t-shirt to end your glorious day!

Many have made this celebration of all things Irish a family tradition, make it yours beginning Saturday, March 16, 2013. Call (843) 280-5570, or
