In addition to countless green-clad spectators lining Landis Avenue, Sea Isle’s 2017 Saint Patrick’s Day Parade will feature many participants, including the Cape Atlantic Police & Fire Irish Pipe Brigade, the Ancient Order of Hibernians Color Guard, and representatives from local Irish families, civic organizations and businesses. The parade will also include Sea Isle’s 2017 “Irish Royal Family” along with City, County and State officials.
Immediately following the parade, spectators can attend this year’s Irish Celebration at Kix-McNutley’s on 63rd Street, where live music and dancing will be offered.
Prior to the Parade and Irish Celebration, the public is invited to participate in a “Best Dressed Contest” at 2:00 p.m. at Kix-McNutley’s on 63rd Street, where prizes will be given to the “Best Dressed Irish Individual” and the “Best Dressed Irish Group.” Registration for this competition begins at 1:30 p.m. at Kix-McNutley’s.
