Blog - CELEBRATE ALL THINGS IRISH ON ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN SEASIDE!
With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to make your plans to visit Seaside for the 2nd Annual Shamrocks in the Square celebration. The festivities will begin at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, March 17th and will include traditional dancing, live music and an appearance by own very own resident Leprechaun.
Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the entire family as we welcome the remarkable Drake Irish Dancers of Fort Walton Beach. Established in 2004, The Drake School of Irish Dance has cemented its position as the leading Irish Dance school in our region. The school has produced 2 Open Champions and one qualifier for the World Championship Competition. The dancers range in age from as young as 5 to adult. The dancers will take to the stage in the Amphitheater at 6:00 PM.
If Celtic music is your pleasure, you will not want to miss Mithril taking the stage at 7:00 PM. Mithril is fast becoming one of the most sought after Celtic/World music groups on the concert series scene. The band’s unique progressive style has its roots in traditional Celtic music but moves far beyond that, weaving such diverse influences as American folk, classical, and Middle Eastern melodies into their full tapestry of sound. Mithril continues to push at the boundaries, taking audiences of all ages on an exotic musical journey to Ireland, Scotland, and beyond.
And keep your eye out for our celebrated, special guest. The Seaside resident Leprechaun will make an appearance throughout the evening with her pot o’ gold, so have your cameras ready to capture the moment forever.« Back to Articles
