A warm sun shone brightly on thousands who came to downtown Wilmington on Saturday for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, warming the cold March shoulders of revelers who came to celebrate their shared Irish heritage – along with friends who were simply up for a good time. 

It was the 43rd year of this promenade down King Street put on by the Irish Culture Club of Delaware (ICCDE), a grand affair featuring all manners of Irish dancing troops and troubadours, even an appearance by the great patron saint himself in the lead float portrayed by long-time ICCD Chairperson Patrick Kelly.

Another St. Patrick was spotted among the street side revelers courtesy of 40 Acres’ Stapler Athletic Association. 

The brisk ten block march led paraders to a Hooley across from St. Patrick’s church at the base of King, with partiers spilling out from the tent, spreading good cheer and green apparel in all directions.
