All Eyes are Shining for St. Patrick’s Day Parade





It was a great day to celebrate bring Irish! Spirited participants in the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade didn’t seem bothered by chilly temps – perhaps because there wasn’t a cloud in the sky or perhaps because the annual march rite promises that warmer spring days are just around the corner!

Sponsored by the Irish Culture Club, Saturday’s parade along King Street in downtown Wilmington included local fire departments, the Delaware State Police, the McAllen School of Irish Dancing, the Harper Academy of Irish Dance, the Washington Memorial Pipe Band, the Peter A. Broomall String Band, the Stapler Athletic Association and several other groups and businesses. The parade marked the kick-off of the time honored tradition where everybody’s Irish for a day!
