POINT PLEASANT BEACH — The third annual ShamROCK event is moving from Arnold and Bay Ave to Channel Drive this year and will be bringing the luck of the Irish into April.
“The first two years it occurred on Arnold and Bay Ave,” said Councilman Doug Vitale. “This year we wanted to change it up a bit and bring residents and visitors down to the channel drive area.”
The town will be closing down Channel Drive on April 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to continue the theme of St. Patrick Day Celebrations. According to Mr. Vitale, the borough decided to host the event at the beginning of April so they could get the best of the Irish performers to attend after being booked up through the month of March for the holiday.
Starting at the beginning of Channel street, leprechauns will be scattered throughout the festivities waiting for children to try and stump them with Irish trivia. If one of them gets stumped, the child receives a gold coin and a prize and can move down the street to the next.
