Head somewhere with beautiful weather and gorgeous beaches to celebrate this year’s St. Patrick’s Day holiday. Fort Walton Beach Florida will check off all those boxes with an exciting list of activities waiting for you just off the beach. Take a look at what you can expect to find:
Get Lucky Half Marathon
Each year around the St Patrick’s Day holiday, Fort Walton Beach hosts the annual Get Lucky Half Marathon. This exciting event is a great way to burn some calories before drinking all the green beer over the weekend. While previous events have included a 5K and 10K run, this year will include the popular half marathon. The event will take place on Saturday and Sunday March 14th through the 15th. Saturday will host the 5K and 10K races, while Sunday will be the half marathon. Participants are encouraged to run either day, or even choose both if they are feeling spunky. You will feel great after finishing the half marathon, as each runner will be given a special medal. Raffle drawings and great prizes can also be won for the top runners in a variety of categories. All proceeds will go directly to the Northwest Florida Track Club. St Paddy’s Day costumes are encouraged, and the race will start at Run With It, located at 170 Miracle Strip Pkwy SE.
St Patrick’s Day at The Gulf

Expect happy hour pricing with $6 Jameson shots, $8 Green Tea drinks, and $6 Lucky Leprechaun cocktails. These special prices are available all day but only for the guests who show up wearing green!
