Tidewater Virginia, St. Patrick's Day Celebrations


***SHAMROCKIN IN GHENT:  Ghent Street Party,  Friday, March 14th 6 - 10 P.M. Colley Avenue in Ghent.
Tis the luck of the Irish we’ll be sharin’ on Colley Avenue, between Shirley & Gates Avenue in the Heart of Ghent, as we welcome all our neighbors to the party of the year, that has been a long standing tradition for the community.  The event will include musical performances by The Newport News Police Pipes and Drums, Glasgow Kiss, and The Deloreans.  In addition to live music, we will be selling various beverages and Belmont House of Smoke will be on hand selling food.  All proceeds benefit Hope House Foundation a local non-profit organization providing independent living services to adults with developmental disabilities in Hampton Roads.  
We encourage you to help us continue this annual St. Patty’s Day tradition and come out and enjoy the sounds and festivities and help us  “paint Ghent green!”  The celebration will continue into the “wee” hours of the night at Ghent’s popular restaurants and nightspots.
