Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Melbourne Florida! | Carolyn Smith, Realtor

Carolyn Smith, Realtor – Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Melbourne FL!

What a gorgeous St. Patrick’s Day in Melbourne, Florida! On this 17th day of March, it is 77 degrees, with beautiful bright blue skies and a perfect slight, cool breeze. Absolute paradise!

The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade took place in Historic Downtown Melbourne at 11 am this morning, and it was jam-packed with festive families out enjoying the day and celebrating the luck of the Irish! The parade was a definite hit, and everyone seemed to enjoy the music, dancing, costumes, marching bands, antique cars, floats, and more. Downtown Melbourne’s Irish restaurant / pub, Meg O’Malley’s, was already bursting at the seams with a long line of folks waiting to get in to enjoy some lunchtime Corned Beef and Cabbage… and maybe a Guinness to wash it down!

Here are some pictures I took during the parade this morning:

The parade was fun, but I admit, my favorite part of the morning was seeing this duck walking down the street! Turns out the duck belongs to the little girl in the green shirt; it is her pet – first she was holding it, then she let it waddle along on its own – adorable and amazing! I want a pet duck! And look, no leash… that duck is trained better than my dogs (which doesn’t say much!) 🙂

If you missed this morning’s festivities, there will be St. Patrick’s Day entertainment all day and night along New Haven Avenue in Downtown Melbourne. The street will stay closed to traffic for the rest of the day, and there will be live music on the outdoor main stage, as well as live music in many of the restaurants and bars, including Meg O’Malley’s. You can check out the musical lineup and entertainment schedule right here: Downtown Melbourne St. Patrick’s Day

Hope you get a chance to get outside and enjoy this picture-perfect Florida day! And Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and your family! I’ll leave you with one of my favorite Irish toasts:

There are good ships,
and there are wood ships,
The ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships,
And may they always be!
