While participants enjoy the drink specials at each bar, Secret Leprechauns will be scattered about the MarshWalk giving out secret coins to those whose costumes are the best, brightest, greenest and most creative. Basically, the more awesome your costume, the more coins you collect; the more coins you collect, the better your chances will be for scoring one of the over 20 prizes being given away! From 6 p.m.-9 p.m., participants have to collect at least one colored coin from every MarshWalk
bar/restaurant to be eligible for any prizes. At 9pm, everyone will gather at the Pirate Statue behind Drunken Jack’s for the drawings. Remember, prizes will all be awarded based solely on luck!
