The 20th Annual Downtown Wilmington St. Patrick’s Day Parade is just around the corner. Saturday, March 16, 2019 is the big day!

Your organization is invited to participate in the Parade, and you have the opportunity to express your civic or school pride by entering a float in the Parade. There will be a contest for the best float, and the winner will receive a cash prize of $250. There will also be prizes for the 2nd and 3rd runner-up floats.

Resources for creating a float can be found on the Internet, such as the DIY Guide to Float Building. The Parade Committee has used Oriental Trading in the past for St. Patrick’s Day themed flags, banners and supplies.

The March 2018 St. Patrick’s Day Parade was the best to date, and our intent is to make the March 2019 St. Patrick’s Day Parade the best ever. Your participation will help us do so. The Parade application is attached for your use.

The Parade web site is, and the email is

Please share the Parade information to all groups within your organization. If anyone cannot participate in the Parade with a float, please come to the Parade and join us anyway, as we march through the streets of Wilmington, celebrating the wearing of the green! Either way, please fill out and submit the Parade application as soon as you can.

See you on March 16, 2019!

Thank you.
The Parade Committee
