Irish Mermaids are what we will be for most of the month of March. It’s a time of spring with all things green and that includes our area’s Irish Heritage, St. Patrick’s Day, and lots of Irish fun. As with all Tybee Islanders, our Mermaids love fancy dress affairs, too. We’ll be sporting our bangles and beads and green frocks, too. Come be our guests so you can be Irish, too!
Tybee Island is hosting the first parade of St. Patrick’s season on Saturday, March 11 from 3 to 5 pm. In its 20th year, the annual Tybee Island Irish Heritage Celebration Parade is two hours of awesome jam-packed with music, marchers and so much more. The family-friendly float fest starts at Tybee City Hall and travels down Butler Avenue to Tybrisa Street. Wear your brightest green garb and get ready to party at the parade!
Enjoy Local Artwork, Gullah Culture, and Cuisine at “Art & Oysters!”
On Thursday, March 23rd, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, Pin Point Heritage Museum will host its annual “Art & Oysters,” a coastal-themed
fundraising event featuring a silent auction of original artwork presented by local artists. Guests are invited to meet and greet with the participating artists and enjoy an evening on the Moon River marsh. Proceeds from the auction will support educational programs and operations at Pin Point Heritage Museum.
“We are thrilled to bring this event back after a three-year hiatus,” said Nora Fleming Lee, CEO of Coastal Heritage Society. “Art and Oysters is a wonderful event to celebrate community artists, share the stories, culture, language, and lifeways of the Gullah-Geechee community, and support Pin Point Heritage Museum!”
Event tickets will include Lowcountry fare and an oyster roast by a local Gullah catering company, A Taste of Heaven, and a cash bar will be available. To hear more about the participating artists, please follow their social media accounts on Instagram and Facebook.
