MARBELLA’S best known landmarks have turned green for a week to celebrate St Patrick’s Day alongside some of the most iconic landmarks in the world including the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Great Wall of China.

More than 200 of the world’s most outstanding sites have joined the Turning the World Green #GoGreen4PatricksDay campaign and the images will then be used in a global advertising campaign by Tourism Ireland.

Marbella’s participation has been included in the St Patrick’s Festival Marbella in conjunction with the Marbella Town Hall, AMC Projects and Robert Leja Photography as part of the festivities organised by Tom Jennings of the Golfer Bar Marbella and The Irish Club Marbella for the fourth annual St Patrick’s Festival.

This year’s event will be held on the weekend of March 19 at the Terrazas de Puerto Deportivo de Marbella and with previous attendances in excess of 10,000, this year promises to be even bigger and better.

 From 12pm to 7pm each day, there will be a range of activities including Irish sport, music, dance, and storytelling.  There will be a particular focus on activities of interest to children and families, with the day featuring Gaelic games for adults and children organised by Marbella’s very own GAA club, Costa Gaels.

Live musicians will be performing throughout with a selection of Irish, Spanish and international entertainment.  

Irish beverage products will be available for purchase at the venue with plenty of areas to relax and enjoy the day. 

Children’s entertainment will be in the form of bouncy castles, clowns and much more.
