[ARCHIVED] 32nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade


The 32nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is scheduled for March 12, 2022 and kicks off at 9:00 am. The parade route will be the same as years past, but will change direction by starting on Ocean Boulevard and ending at Ye Olde Kings Hwy. The purpose for this change is to try to reduce the impact the parade has on 2nd Avenue North. If successful, this route may be used for future parades in North Myrtle Beach.  

The parade staging and line up will occur at 7:00 am on Ocean Boulevard from 2nd Ave North to 11th Ave North. Southbound lanes on Ocean Boulevard from 11th Ave North to 1st Ave South will be closed to traffic from 7:00 am - 11:00 am. From 9:00 am - 11:00 am the closure will include both southbound and northbound lanes from 2nd Ave North to 1st Ave South.

The parade will begin on Ocean Boulevard at 2nd Ave North and proceed south to 1st Avenue South. At the intersection of 1st Avenue South and Ocean Boulevard the parade turns right onto 1st Avenue South, then right onto Hillside Drive, then left onto Main Street, and traveling on Main Street to Ye Olde Kings Highway to conclude the parade route.

Scott Richards with Easy Radio will be announcing parade participants as they go by the Horseshoe on Ocean Blvd. Judges will also be stationed at the Horseshoe to vote for their “Best” parade entries.

WPDE personalities, Ed Piotrowski and Jennifer Abney, will be announcing the parade at the Community Stage located at Main Street and N. Oak Drive. For those that can’t make the parade in person, it will be broadcast LIVE on CW21.

This fun-loving parade of St. Patrick’s Day themed and decorated floats is a 32-year tradition on the streets of North Myrtle Beach. It is a great time for all ages and kicks off the 32nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival taking place on Main Street from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm.

There are two off site parking locations with free shuttle service to the event area: Ocean Drive Elementary School (901 11th Avenue North, NMB) and J. Bryan Floyd Community Center (1030 Possum Trot Road, NMB.)
