Irish or not, we all wear green, celebrate the plucky leprechaun, drink green ale and tell tall tales.  We're willing to kiss a stone...sing an olde Irish song (after many mugs of the green ale) and in general, have a heck of a time.  
As you can see...We take Wearing of the Green very seriously!
FUN FACT:  "The Wearing of the Green" is actually an Irish street
ballad lamenting the repression of supporters of the Irish Rebellion of 1798.

But in Delaware County it all starts with Springfield Township's Irish Parade featuring live music, great food and all things green!

String Bands, Military Groups, Scouts, Choirs and more have all marched in this popular annual Parade that promises to be bigger and better than ever!

The parade starts noon at West Springfield and Britton Roads and ends at the reviewing stand at the Old Central School on Saxer Avenue and Powell Road.
.
Springfield's favorite musician, Tom Curtis, will be honored as Grand Marshall, and as part of the tradition, revelers can convene after the parade to celebrate all things Irish at Hanrahan's  Pub in Drexel Hill.

LOCATION: Springfield Township, PA
