Lexington still going green with the Blowfish in March

Lexington, SC 01/29/2021 (Paul Kirby) - The Lexington County Blowfish and the Town of Lexington will still be going green for St. Patrick’s Day in 2021! In fact, they are putting out the call right now so that float builders, spectators, and merry makers will have enough time to get themselves together and get organized for a great Paddy's Day again this year!

Lauren Hand, a spokesperson for the Lexington County Blowfish, said this week they’d like to invite you back to march down Main Street in this year's Town of Lexington's 2021 Shamrock Parade. That is scheduled for Saturday, March 13th at 2:00 pm on Main Street in downtown Lexington. The staging area will be once again at the corners of Haygood and Butler Street and entries should arrive no later than 1:15 pm.

With COVID-19 pandemic still hanging around, the Blowfish’s leaders want you to be assured that they are taking every safety precaution necessary so that you can enjoy yourself and the day. This year, with all the challenges everyone’s faced, if you find it necessary, they can waive your entry fee, normally just $35. If you can pay it of course helps them make the family fun event possible.

With the uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please keep in mind that this event could be postponed or possibly cancelled. Though the "Luck of the Irish" is with them they still want it to be the safest parade....ever!

In closing, Hand said via email, “We do hope that you are interested in participating in this year's Town of Lexington Annual Shamrock Parade.”
