Every year in North Charleston there is a St. Patrick’s Day block party and parade. This year, the event will be held on Saturday, March 14th from noon until 7pm. The fun includes three stages of live music, vendors, bouncy castles for the kids, a mechanical bull, Irish food, and beer (naturally).
This year, Charleston will be holding a special event to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with man’s best friend, the St. Paddy’s Pawlooza. On Saturday, March 14th, head to North Charleston Wannamaker County Park with your dog from noon until 4 PM. There will be live music, beer, and food trucks. Be sure to dress both you and your furry friend in your finest green attire. Admission is $5 per person and all dogs must remain on a leash when not inside the off-leash dog park.
And if you didn’t have enough fun on Saturday, right here in Charleston there will be a St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 17th. The festivities for this day start with a Mass at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church at 8am. Then the parade will begin at 10am outside of the church, head down King Street, and end at City Hall with the raising of the Irish flag at approximately 11:30am.
