St. Patrick’s Day – An OBX Tradition

 In Food & Dining, Holidays

Enjoy an Outer Banks St. Patrick’s Day Tradition!

Every year, Mike Kelly organizes a parade that falls on the Sunday closest to St. Patrick’s Day. This annual family friendly parade is one of the largest St. Patty’s Day parades in North Carolina. Each year locals and visitors line up and down the beach road in excitement for this well-known OBX tradition. This year the parade falls on Sunday, March 15th, 2020.

Mr. Kelly has selected the Coastal Humane Society as the Grand Marshall for the parade. The Coastal Humane Societies Walkathon is a major fundraiser that relies on donations to help keep their mission alive. ANY amount of donation is welcome and greatly appreciated.

Please join us after the Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade at Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint KDH Parade and GET BUZZED for a great cause! Shave your head, donate, enjoy a burger and a beverage and help us raise money to find a cure so we can change this statistic. More children are lost to cancer in the U.S. than any other disease—in fact, more than many other childhood diseases combined.
