On Saturday, March 18, CanalSide Lofts residents will have the chance to take part in one of downtown Columbia’s favorite traditions: St. Pat’s in Five Points!
Now in its 35th year, the festival is one of the largest of its kind in the Southeast with an attendance nearing 45,000 people!
The day starts with Columbia’s largest road race, Get to the Green. Featuring a 10k, 5k, and one-mile family fun run, it’s a good way to start your celebrations off on the right foot. The parade will begin at 10:00 am and run down the Musical Mile on Devine Street.
After the race and parade, you can get your sham-rock on at six stages featuring some huge performing artists, eat and drink all the green food you can find, and celebrate the coming of spring in Columbia.
When the festival is done, head back to your apartment at CanalSide, less than three miles away from the center of the party, and start planning next year’s green outfit!
