St Patrick’s Day celebrations took over the footpath outside Blankenberge, Florrie McGreal’s Irish Pub and The Elephant Wrestler, complete with live music and traditional Irish dancers from mid-afternoon on Thursday 17 March. 

You didn’t have to be Irish to enjoy the fun, though there were Irish accents aplenty among the patriotically green crowd. Revellers were only too happy to show their Irish style to Channel Magazine, and it’s clear that dressing up for St Paddy’s is now a well-established tradition on the Shore.
