When you see the stripe of green paint appear down the center of King Street in downtown Wilmington, you know the Irish won’t be far behind. The annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade has been held annually on the Saturday before the holiday (even when the holiday falls on a Saturday) for nearly five decades. Bagpipes and Irish dancers fill the parade route, and once the last band has gone by, many revelers head to grab a pint or two at the annual hooley party hosted by the Irish Culture Club of Delaware.
