WILD Weekend: St. Paddy's Celebration in the Wildwoods!

The Wildwoods will turn GREEN this weekend (well, more so than usual) as the island celebrates St. Patrick's Day and the spirit of the Irish!

Taps will be flowing, much merriment will be had, and live entertainment is scheduled at many of Wildwood and North Wildwood's bars, restaurants and nightspots.

The weekend's "main event" is North Wildwood's annual St. Patrick's Day Celebration & Parade on Saturday, March 14.

Festivities begin with a ceremony on the steps of North Wildwood City Hall (10th & Atlantic Aves) at 11:30 a.m.

This will be followed by the parade, which will step off from this location at noon and proceed north along Atlantic Avenue to Olde New Jersey Avenue.

U.S. Army veteran Kevin McCloskey of Northeast Philly will serve as this year's Grand Marshal.

Check out the flyer at right (click for larger view) for a list of some of the parade's participants.

The event is FREE to the public. For more information, call 609-522-2955 or visit
