St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Celebration
Saturday, March 12th, 2016

It was a beautiful day for this year St. Patrick’s Day celebration, as hundreds of green wearing Irish-Americans congressed at the stairs of City Hall, before marching down Atlantic Avenue to conclude in the Entertainment District. Spectators lined up outside of City Hall to watch local elected officials, clergymen, representatives from Wildwood Catholic Student Council, and festive pipe bands celebrate their Irish heritage during this year’s annual celebration.

Spectators also enjoyed wonderful performances by: Macey Bischoff singing the National Anthem and God Bless America, NW Police Captain Kevin Tolan and the CMC Pipes performing the Irish National Anthem, performances by Second Street Irish Society Pipe Band, Duffys String Band and the Cape May Atlantic Police and Fire Pipe Brigade.

Mayor Rosenello released in a statement that he is grateful for the turn out by local community organizations; and the unparalleled dedication to festival operations by our City employees. “I would like to thank the clubs and organizations that come down every year to celebrate with us; as well as our hard working City staff, for their dedication to this event, which goes off with a hitch year after year,” said Mayor Patrick Rosenello.
