———————————————————————————————————————The Wilmington St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee and Cool Wilmington Announce the Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Downtown festival to be held on September 18, 2021–FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 15, 2021, Wilmington, NC — The Wilmington St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee (Committee) today announced that a Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Parade will step-off in downtown Wilmington at 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 18.

Joe Costy, the spokesperson for the Committee, stated that the Annual Wilmington St. Patrick’s Day Parade will not be held in March due to the ongoing pandemic situation. With indications of a gradual return to normalcy, the Committee has commenced planning for the parade on September 18, and it is viewed as an opportunity for the Cape Fear region to come together in downtown Wilmington and celebrate the wearin’ o’ the green!

After the Parade ends, the Downtown Wilmington Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day Festival commences with music, food and activities for the entire family.  The Committee annually organizes the Parade, which has been described as one of the Top 10 St. Patrick’s Day Parades in small cities in America. In addition to the Parade, the Committee organizes an Annual Irish Music Night, with live traditional Irish music and dancers, and the proceeds offset the expenses of the Parade.
