The weekend is quickly approaching, which means that we are only days away from America’s favorite green holiday. Kick-off your St. Paddy’s Day fun in Boynton Beach at the 5th Annual Boynton Beach Blarney Bash. The free event, which is presented by the Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), will take place on Saturday, March 16th, from 4 pm to 9 pm in downtown Boynton Beach.
The festival is jam-packed with fun activities and happens to be one of the only family-friendly St. Patrick’s Day events in the area. There will be a variety of interactive activities for kids, including a bounce house, inflatable slide, rock wall, game trailer, face painting, balloon art, and craft activities offered by Macaroni Kid and Sea Turtle Adventures. Children will delight as they have the opportunity to interact and take photos with leprechauns and other roaming costumed characters.
But the fun is definitely not just for the kiddos, adults can indulge in a variety of cuisine and libations that will leave your taste buds craving more. There will be a large selection of food including Irish and American favorites, cocktails and beer – lots and lots of green beer. Come dance the night away to live music from The FLYERS, The Roaring Kelly Band, and Celtic Mayhem. A special Irish step dance performance from the Aranmore Academy of Irish Dance will inspire you to soar to new heights.

PARKING IS LIMITED
Have you heard that the City of Boynton Beach is under construction? The redevelopment of the downtown core has temporarily reduced the amount of parking that is available for events held in the area. We highly suggest carpooling or using a riding sharing service like Uber or Lyft to get to the festival. If you must drive, to avoid headaches and frustration, arrive early for the best parking or put on your best walking shoes and park at one of our offsite parking locations. Click below for the available parking locations.
We want everyone to have an amazingly awesome time at the event. However, your safety is our number one priority. Have fun but don’t risk everything by drinking and driving. Please plan ahead and determine who will be your designated driver or use Uber or Lyft for transportation to and from the festival.
