It’s a multiple parade weekend, and you know what that means — the shenanigans shall be epic. Between the spectacular and unexpected resurrection of the Atlantic City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the first annual Shake the Shamrock Weekend in Brigantine, and the always-festive parades in North Wildwood and Sea Isle City, there will be parties and after-parties all over the area. Here are a few of our favorites:
