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!
March 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm EST
Tybee Island is hosting the first parade of the St. Patrick’s Day season on Saturday, March 11 from 3 to 5 pm. Now 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! Irish Societies march from 6th Street and all other units march from 5th Street. The Parade proceeds along Butler Avenue (US Hwy. 80) and ends at the Pier/Strand parking lot. Come and enjoy bands, bagpipes, floats, families, and other groups.
