Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in OBX

St. Patrick's Day OBX

Whether you are Irish or not, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most exciting spring celebrations to take part in here in Nags Head. From 5ks to parades, there are festive events and activities going on all along the coast.

Once you read about the fun you can have here at Surf Side Hotel, we’re sure you’ll be packing your suitcase with green colored clothing faster than a leprechaun can hide his gold!

Running of the Leprechauns 5K & 10K

Taking place on Saturday, March 16, OBSE’s Running of the Leprechauns lets you get active while on vacation.

Participate in the 5K or 10K run, and then enjoy an Irish-themed after party and the “Get Lucky” costume contest! OBSE will have Irish stew, sweet potato biscuits & beer!

Hosted at Outer Banks Sporting Events Center right here in Nags Head, the good times will continue all through the morning and afternoon at this celebratory event. To register, click here.

30th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Head to Kelly’s Outer Banks Restaurant & Tavern on Sunday, March 17 to celebrate the holiday with Nags Head’s 30th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Watch as floats and participants decked in green march down the street, and don’t forget to keep your eye out for a leprechaun and his pot of gold!

The parade begins at 1 p.m.; winding from the intersection of Blasden St. and Virginia Dare Trail to Driftwood Street. And don’t forget to head to Kelly’s right after. There will be live music and green beer flowing all throughout the afternoon.

With so many festive events to participate, we’re sure you will want to join us in OBX for St. Patrick’s Day. Once you’ve signed up to participate in the 5K or 10K race, all that’s left to do is book your Surf Side Hotel stay. We look forward to seeing you here!
