It was a day for Wearin’ the Green as participants and spectators gathered for Mike Kelly’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Nags Head on Sunday, March 17.

The one-mile parade route runs from Bladen St. north to Driftwood St. on Virginia Dare Trail for an event that has grown to include over 100 entrants more than 10,000 spectators. That makes it the largest St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the State of North Carolina. This year’s Parade Marshall was Dare County Historical Maritime Industry.
