So I thought a cheetah ‘kilt’ was the perfect outfit choice for the Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day. Erin and I went exploring in North Myrtle Beach for their annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration. It was so much bigger than we remember. It had 4 stages full of bands all day, a parade in the morning and food and art vendors down the whole of Main Street.
The people at this festival have great costumes! I brought my own..
However… this guy beat me to it.
The bands were great! We really liked a band called The Band Punch out of Raleigh. So many people were dancing all day!
Erin found a dress store that copied her look. haha
We took a break for a few hours in anticipation for the Ocean Boulevard party in Myrtle Beach. We go EVERY year to the festivals downtown. They are always packed out with crazy people and green beer. They have great bands, too. This year, American Idol’s Elise Testone was the headliner.
We got VIP passes thanks to Dad but it didn’t take us long to get kicked out. You have to drink your green beer in the tent and stay far from the band? No way!
We liked the other bands, too however we couldn’t wait for Elise and guess what? I got right up close for great pictures and we even got a photo with her after her performance! She was awesome and sang everything from Jamiroquai to Led Zeppelin.
Myrtle Beach is the best place for St. Patrick’s Day hands down! At least 6 different events were going on around Myrtle Beach.
Make sure you have your green on today and don’t get pinched! Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
