Hilton Head Events
Just because you can’t gather with a group of like-minded people doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Earth Day on April 22.
This year’s event — the 50th anniversary of the holiday — will be celebrated online with Digital Earth Day, according to the Earth Day Network.
“Amid the recent outbreak, that means using our voices to drive action online rather than in person,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of Earth Day Network.
HILTON HEAD CELEBRATES WITH POPULAR ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE
Officially, St. Patrick’s Day is March 17, but Hilton Head Island likes to get a jump on the celebration. More than 25,000 people are expected to line Pope Avenue on March 15 for the annual parade — one of the oldest in honor of St. Patrick in South Carolina.
HILTON HEAD ISLAND ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE: The oldest St. Patrick’s Day parade in South Carolina. Featuring a parade of floats, boats, trucks, cars, bikes, golf carts, people, horses and dogs. Free. 3 p.m., Pope Avenue, Hilton Head Island. www.hiltonheadireland.org.
FOR PLAYERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, THE BEST WAY TO GET TO HILTON HEAD IS BY BRIDGE
For the uninitiated, it seems like playing bridge requires speaking a foreign language. Swiss teams. Holding a blank hand. Biffing the led suit. Death holding. Double dummy. Gold points. Black points. Red points. Knockouts.
But to those in the know, it’s the language of love — right up until you’re sat. Then silence rules, lest accusations of table talk begin to fly.
Local restaurants will serve their favorite soups from noon to 4 p.m. Outside at Coligny Plaza during the Souperbowl of caring fundraiser to benefit nonprofit second helpings. Live music by pretty darn. $10. www.colignyplaza.com/events
