FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: FEBRUARY 12, 2015
GET A HEAD START ON ST. PADDY'S DAY CELEBRATIONS AT CENTRAL MISSOURI'S LAKE OF THE OZARKS
Lake of the Ozarks, Mo. - Whether they are Irish or not, visitors to the Lake of the Ozarks can get a head start on St. Patrick's Day at the 5th Annual St. Patrick's Day Short Bus Shuffle, to be held March 14 on the west side of Lake of the Ozarks in Central Missouri.

Ten restaurants and nightspots will offer live entertainment and St. Patrick's Day food and drink specials.  In addition, six West Side lodging establishments will provide special Short Bus Shuffle rates for participants who make reservations in advance. 

 

Shuttle buses will safely transport "shufflers" from location to location, beginning at 4 p.m.  A required $5 wristband grants entrance to any participating entertainment venue along the shuffle route and is also necessary to ride the shuttles.  "The Lake of the Ozarks West Lake Chamber of Commerce's goal for the Short Bus Shuffle is for participants to have a fun time and be transported safely when doing so," Chamber Executive Director Deborah Buscher said.  "We are currently selling wrist bands and they can be ordered directly from the chamber office."


Many participants will be honoring the St. Patrick's Day tradition of wearing green, including green souvenir shirts from the Short Bus Shuffle.  Like the wrist bands, the shirts are available prior to the event at any participating location or the Lake of the Ozarks West Chamber of Commerce office.

 

A list of the businesses and lodging establishments participating in the St. Patrick's Day Short Bus Shuffle can be found at: www.lakewestchamber.com/events/short-bus-shuffle or the event's Facebook page: www.facebook.com/shortbusshuffle.  These sites also include information about making lodging reservations.
