2019 St. Patrick’s Day, Texan Style, with Sam’s Limousine!
There’s no doubt about it – St. Patrick’s Day isn’t just for the Irish here in Texas. In fact, there have been St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Texas dating back to the 1700s! Texans love St. Patrick’s Day, and just like everything else we do, we celebrate BIG in the Lone Star State.
Sam’s Limousine is the premiere transportation provider for your 2019 St. Patrick’s Day festivities this year.
These days, there’s only one party in town that’s got everyone buzzing, a two-day festival of music, food, dancing, and celebration within Texas’ very own town of Shamrock.
Introducing The Annual Shamrock Festival, Texas’ official statewide St. Patrick’s Day celebration, held from March 15 through March 17, 2019.
Kicked off by the annual St. Patrick’s Track Meet at El Paso Field, the weekend also features helicopter rides, arts and crafts, cornhole tournament, and even a Donegal Beard Contest! Attracting revelers from throughout the entire state and even the world, this annual celebration is based at the famous U-Drop Inn, the real-life inspiration for Disney’s 2006 “Cars,” located at the historic intersection of Route 66 and US Highway 83.
There’s a big dance on Saturday night beginning at 9pm at the Shamrock Community Center, featuring live performances by Parker McCollum and Kolby Cooper.
Cap off a brilliant weekend of fun with the second day of the Ranch Rodeo, as well as the Lad ‘N Lassie Pageant in the Shamrock High School’s Auditorium.
Nearly seven hours from Austin, and 8 from Houston, it requires a bit of a commitment travel wise, but that’s where Sam’s Limousine can help.
With our impeccable fleet of luxurious vehicles, maintained in-house and stocked with the most opulent of amenities, we make interstate travel a breeze.
From glittering party buses with laser optic lighting and gleaming wooden floors, to stretch limousines with well-appointed bars and flat screen TVs, you will have everything you need to keep the party going both on and off board our enchanting vehicles!
If you’re unable to travel far, don’t fear. Both Houston and Austin have plenty to offer in the way of local celebrations, as well!
St. Patrick’s Day Austin will be held all day on Sunday, March 17th at Pioneer Farms. Just 20 minutes outside Austin, it is just a short ride to Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farms; even if you plan on traveling in from Houston, it’s less than three hours to this celebration!
Featuring authentic Celtic music and Irish dancers, you will find plenty of your favorite Irish beers, as well as all of your favorite Irish delicacies.
Kids both young and old will love the special Star Trek version of laser tag, a video game theater, and even a bumper soccer arena! And its educational, too. The Gaelic League of Austin will be offering a free Irish language intro course that’s open to the public.
For Houstonites, catch the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade, one of the largest in the country, as it marches westward through downtown.
McGonigel’s Mucky Ducks’ annual celebration is a local staple for St. Patrick’s Day in Houston – so much so that USA Today actually named it one of the top 10 places to celebrate in the U.S.!
But it isn’t all fun and games.
There’s no doubt that alcohol holds court during St. Patrick’s Day festivities, but DUIs and DWIs are a real issue each and every year.
SCRAM reports that nearly 69% of all accident fatalities during the early hours of March 18th involve drunk driving.
Houston has also recently made headlines for its No Refusal Weekends, a new program created in response to holidays and popular times when DUI and DWI arrests skyrocket. Under this program, law enforcement is legally able to temporarily suspend the public’s right to refusal when it comes to sobriety and/or breathalyzer tests.
Even if you do not plan on drinking, there is still much to be gained from hiring a trusted and popular professional service like Sam’s Limousine.
Sometimes the adventure is in the journey, not the destination, so ditch the traffic and parking woes, and enjoy your trip! Depending on the size of the party you can use our luxury SUV’s, Party Buses, Mini Buses, or even a Charter Bus for larger groups this St. Patricks Day.
Adults can indulge in Irish favorites at the onboard bar, while the kiddies catch a holiday flick or nap away a full day of excitement on the way home. Arrive home refreshed and ready for the week ahead, with all the St Patty’s Day memories to last a lifetime.
Fully licensed and insured, the experienced and certified drivers at Sam’s Limousine will prioritize your family’s safety, ensuring that this holiday, and every holiday, is one of safe celebration.
