It's hard to believe, but Saint Patrick's day is just around the corner, and people on Hilton Head Island are getting ready. Today, the parade committee announced Judge Sol Blatt, Jr., will preside over the 23rd annual Hilton Head Island Saubt Patrick's Day parade.

Judge Blatt is known on the island for being a key player in saving Sea Pines, Wexford, and Port Royal Plantations from being sold off as assets in the bankruptcy of Hilton Head Holdings in the 1980s.

Now he's excited to serve as grand marshal. "I'm flattered, honored, and pleased," he said. "I don't know anyone who loves Hilton Head Island more than I do. It's quite an honor."

The Saint Patrick's Day parade kicks off this Sunday afternoon at 2pm on Hilton Head Island.
