It’s not St. Patrick’s Day in Emerald Isle without the excitement and fun of the St. Patrick’s Festival! It’s been a shamrock holiday tradition in Emerald Isle for 23 years and is only growing better with time! This year we celebrate our 24th  Annual Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Festival which is proudly presented by Transportation Impact on Saturday, March 14th from 9am-6pm at the Emerald Plantation shopping center.  Admission and parking are free for the festival.  This year’s festival will feature over 75 arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, Oak Grove Stables petting zoo and rides, clowns and amusement rides, face painters, and many other fun family-oriented activities. Festival goers can also enjoy a beer garden (Age 21 and over only) and entertainment on any one of our three stages! The Little Ms. & Mr. Leprechaun Contest will take place on the main stage at 9am.  The contest is for boys and girls ages 2-3 and 4-5 and requires pre-registration by 12pm on Thursday, March 12th. The Transportation Impact No. 43 Ford Fusion will be joining the 2015 Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Festival fun! Locally-owned, Transportation Impact made its NASCAR debut at the Pocono 400 in June of 2012 and maintains an associate sponsorship with Richard Petty Motorsports. The 24th Annual Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Festival is promised to be a day of leprechaun fun and nothing short of memorable! NEW this year!
