Wildwood, NJ – Every year,  North Wildwood wears lots of green for the big parade along Atlantic Ave. After opening ceremonies on the steps of City Hall,  at noon the parade marches from 10th and Atlantic Avenues to a a reviewing stand at Olde New Jersey Ave.   It’s a day when everyone’s Irish. Some of the people with the most colorful costumes are not in the parade, they’re watching from the sidelines.
