March is just around the corner and with it comes the most beloved Outer Banks event – the Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Held on Sunday, March 17, 2013, the parade starts promptly at 1pm, rain or shine, and features cars, floats, marching bands and more that line up and travel from MP 11.5 to MP 10.5 in Nags Head to celebrate the greenest holiday of the year. With over 10,000 spectators watching about 1,500 participants, this is one of North Carolina’s largest parades. Mike Kelly, CEO/Owner Kelly Hospitality, says that “the St. Patrick’s Day Parade is part of a huge weekend on the Outer Banks. It is how the locals say goodbye to winter and welcome spring to the Outer Banks.”
Throughout the entire St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the Outer Banks is buzzing with activity. From the crowds that descend upon this barrier island for the Outer Banks Taste of the Beach to the athletes who come on Saturday to run in Kelly’s Running of the Leprechaun 8K to Kelly’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, itself, there are so many things to do. The parade is the perfect lead in to the TOB judging at Kelly Hospitality’s own Pamlico Jack’s.
Kelly Hospitality Group and its three landmark restaurants have been fixtures on the Outer Banks for many years. In addition to supporting community efforts, Kelly Hospitality Group is known for its superior service with Outer Banks catering abilities at many area parties, weddings and other events of any sizes.
