SEA ISLE CITY — March 15, Mayor Leonard Desiderio and his family will host Sea Isle City’s 24th Annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade and Irish Celebration. The parade will begin at 3:30 p.m. at 93rd Street and Landis Avenue, and will continue north on Landis before culminating at 63rd Street.
In addition to countless shamrock-clad spectators lining Landis Avenue, Sea Isle’s 2014 Saint Patrick’s Day Parade will once again feature many participants, including the Cape Atlantic Police & Fire Irish Pipe Brigade, the Ancient Order of Hibernians Color Guard, Buena Regional High School Marching Band, representatives from local Irish families, civic organizations and businesses, as well as members of the Townsend Inlet Yacht Club. The parade will also include numerous City, County and State officials, Sea Isle’s 2014 “Irish Royal Family” and this year’s grand marshal, Dan Skeldon, of NBC-40.
During the Irish Celebration, which will begin immediately after the parade, the public will be invited to enjoy live music and dancing inside KIX-McNutley’s on 63rd Street. As people arrive at KIX-McNutley’s, they will be greeted by representatives from the Sea Isle City Beach Tag Office, who will be selling special edition Saint Patrick’s Day Beach Tags at the pre-season rate of $20 each. The commemorative beach tags, which are available in limited quantities, are full-season beach passes for the summer of 2014.
“Sea Isle’s Saint Patrick’s Day Parade is the oldest in Cape May County,” said Mayor Desiderio. “I’m sure many people are looking forward to our parade – especially after the hard winter we’ve all experienced. There will be many Irish eyes smiling, and it promises to be a fun time for all!”
