wilmington: Wing Fling Alternative - St. Patty's Party!! - 03/13/08 05:42 AM
Couldn't get wing fling tickets... or would you rather have a calmer, relaxed Saturday downtown?
The first annual St. Patrick's day parade and celebration is a great alternative.  On Sat. there will be a parade downtown and then an afternoon filled with fun, live music and great food and drinks.  As you may have heard on the radio, they are advertising by saying "the Guiness will be flowing faster than the Cape Fear river!"
There will also be lots of awesome music including a U2 coverband!  To check out all the other bands and find out more details follow the link below to … (0 comments)
