St Patty's Day Cruise - Melbourne Harbor, March 17-18: Hosts: Tom & Mary Ann O'Shea

Arrive early on Saturday, by boat or car, and enjoy the parade, which begins at 11 a.m. in downtown Melbourne, then enjoy the zany Irish
festivities at Meg O’Malley’s.

Anchor off Front Street Park and dinghy into Melbourne Harbor, or call Melbourne Harbor Marina for a reservation (321-725-9054). Melbourne Yacht Club will allow ECSA to use their dinghy docks, and there is room for two boats on the T-dock, first come first served. Call Tom O’Shea for the gate code.

ECSA activities will begin at 5 p.m. in “The Mansion” downstairs courtyard, just a short walk over Crane Creek from MYC or from downtown Front Street. Lots of parking available at the Mansion – but remember you get extra points for coming by boat!

Enjoy Blarney, Irish Humor, Irish music and a get-to-know-St. Patrick (even if you’re not Irish) contest, complete with prizes and perhaps a
visit by ECSA’s very own Leprechaun. Wear your GREEN and join us for some magical fun!


The Mansion ( 321-345-5800) has good food at reasonable prices, including sandwiches, burgers and entrees, and most of all, a great variety of beer and wines.

Stick around or come back to join us Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. for a potluck breakfast in Front Street Park.

We would like to have a good estimate for the number of people coming to the Mansion, so would appreciate a phone call if you plan to be there. For more information or to sign up - call Tom O’Shea at 321-986-8772 or 919-423-1508. Or send email to
