A Local St. Patrick’s Day Tradition You Don’t Want to Miss

Categories: News,The Right Blend Blog

The South is known for its easy-going lifestyle filled with hospitality, good food, and traditions. Liberty County is no exception to any of these rules, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Holidays are a great example of those Southern-isms that we all know and love so it shouldn’t be a surprise we have plenty of our own holiday traditions. Most people expect traditional meals and activities at major holidays like Christmas, New Years and the 4th of July, but we have other traditions that may surprise you. One of the most unique holiday traditions comes from the Isle of Wight and their annual St. Patrick’s Day Golf Cart Parade.

Each year residents of Isle of Wight, located in Midway, and a few local natives who know about this tradition will find a spot on the main streets of the small community to see the line-up of golf carts, ATVs and other small motored means of transportation partaking in the fun. Spectators will see “floats” and people wearing every shade of green you can imagine while tossing candy and beaded necklaces to the crowd. Check out the photos below of this year’s event!
