Saint Patrick’s Day at Captain’s Quarters02/26/2013
Captain’s Quarters Resort is perfectly positioned in the heart of Myrtle Beach to offer tons of different options for guests looking to get some Irish-style fun in during their stay.
The Downtown Myrtle Beach St. Patrick’s Day Celebration will go from noon to midnight on Saturday, March 16, near the Boardwalk. Don’t worry you won’t have to look too hard to find it. Much of the downtown area is full of festively adorned visitors and locals, as well as vendors and the sounds of bagpipes and other Irish themed music.
The concert line-up includes at least 9 different bands, with 7 offering traditional music and two Pipe and Drum bands to put the sound of bagpipes in the ears of everyone around the festival.
The event also features a KidsZone, games and contests and admission is free, though the beer and food is not. The event is family-friendly but has more of an adult focus later on in the evening. And for those who need to celebrate some on the actual date of March 17, there’s usually an after party somewhere close by where the party can continue from midnight onwards.
And, guests at Captain’s Quarters don’t have to worry about finding a way to get to the festivities. Those who don’t mind a bit of a walk can get there easily and enjoy some of the sights of downtown Myrtle Beach on the way. Or Captain’s Quarter guests can get a discounted ride (20%off!) with Rockstar Cab if the walk seems a bit too far thanks to the VMB card.
Captain’s Quarters is also a short drive away from the Market Common and their 4th annual St. Pats celebration, the Irish Festival.
In Valor Park in the center of this shopping district will be live music from Painted Man, an oyster roast, food and drink vendors selling a variety of Irish food and beer, as well as activities for kids like inflatables and face painting.
The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 16 and admission is free.
You can also head down to Murrells Inlet on Friday night, Saturday all day, or Sunday all day and watch some amazing dogs.
The Dogs Way Inn will be holding a dog agility competition featuring more than 200 races St. Patrick’s Day weekend. It doesn’t have an Irish theme, but lots of nearby bars and restaurants are sure to have some green-dominated festivities you can check out as well.
