Look for leprechauns, street musicians and food trucks in Landrum during the March 16 St. Patty’s Day Street Party. The party kicks off at 12 and continues until 4 pm on North Trade Avenue. This is a first-time event for the Landrum Area Business Association and President Diana Winkler is excited about the day’s offerings. When you think about St. Patrick’s Day, you think of fun and good times,” she said. “That’s what we want our party-goers to experience.” 


Prior to their kick off, Tom Crabtree will emcee two contests: best decorated pooch and most dapper Irish derby. Those with entries should gather at the stage for the 1 pm judging.

Food trucks at the street party will provide barbecue, peanuts, hot and cold drunks,  hot dogs, nachos and chips and carnival food. Musicians playing on North Trade or E. Rutherford will include Valerie Blackwood, Wyatt, Brooks Dixon Band, Morgan Hodge/Mallory Blackwood Southern Gospel. Rock and Roll Reunion from Spartanburg will play from 1-3 pm on the main stage. 


Two bounce houses will be set up along with a dunking booth. Waiting to hit the water will be Police Chief Kris Ahler, City Administrator Rich Caplan, City Council members Daniel Prince and Shannon Dotson and Brannon Poore, minister at The Well. 


A colorful leprechaun photo booth, created by David Cedrone, artist/owner of Whimsical World Art Gallery in Landrum, will be found next to the N. Trade fountain, dyed green to celebrate the holiday. Cruise America will have two RVs set up for tours, one of which will be hosted by a very strange looking leprechaun. 


The street party is a cooperative effort of LABA, the City of Landrum and the Landrum Fire and Rescue District.
