Lexington County, S.C.- On Wednesday, the Lexington County Blowfish hosted their second media luncheon of 2019. The Shamrock luncheon, presented by Kinetic from Windstream, was the venue for the announcement of several additions to the Shamrock Parade on Saturday, March 9th from 12 noon till 5pm with the parade at 2pm.

A "Lucky" Addition- On Wednesday, co-owner of the Blowfish Bill Shanahan, along with the rest of the Shamrock Parade committee, announced the addition of a family festival to the Shamrock Parade. The festival, which will emanate from the IceHouse Amphitheater parking lot, "is a great addition to the Shamrock parade festivities," Shanahan noted. "In partnership with a number of community minded groups including the Connick School of Irish Dance, Ancient Order of Hibernians, Palmetto Amusements (weather pending), On Stage Productions, Fort Jackson Recruiting Company, Emerald Artistry-Face Painting and Balloon Making and more. We believe this will become one of the great traditions in the town of Lexington & Lexington County."

Joe Pinner (mr.knozit) will once again emcee the parade from in front of Blowfish on Main.

The Blowfish along with the Town of Lexington and the Greater Lexington Chamber & Visitors Center are the presenting sponsors of the Shamrock Parade.
