If you're hoping to relocate to Memphis, Tennessee, you might be surprised to learn how festive the area can be on March 17. After working with a Moving Company to complete the arduous tasks of transporting and unpacking, you'll definitely want to start enjoying your new home. Here are four St. Patrick's Day events in Memphis that can give your family a dose of fun after a big move.
- The St. Patrick's Day Parade on Beale Street, which is located just a few blocks from the illustrious Mississippi River, features a number of local marching bands, carnival floats and vintage cars. Since this event occurs in the heart and soul of downtown Memphis, you'll be pleased to know that blues music venues and Irish pubs like Silky O'Sullivan's are within reach.
- The Memphis Bop Club, which is a musical organization founded in the late 1980s with the purpose of bringing back soul and rock and roll music from the 50s and 60s, usually hosts an annual event known as the St. Patrick's Day Dance. Although this celebration takes place in the suburb of Cordova, which is about 20 or 30 minutes from downtown, it might be one of the most romantic ways to enjoy the holiday.
- Another popular event in Cordova is St. Patrick's Day at T.J. Mulligan's, which will include live performances, green beer and plenty of Guinness! This venue is located along historic U.S. Highway 64, and it has an old-fashioned atmosphere that can please old and young crowds alike.
- If you'd rather enjoy physical activities on St. Patrick's Day, there's one event that might be right up your alley. The Peddler Bike Shop is hosting an event known as the Tweed Ride, which encourages local bicyclists to dress in tweed and do what they do best with an entire group.
