Smithfield St. Patrick’s Day Parade brings Irish, hometown pride

Published 4:40 pm Tuesday, March 14, 2023

Smithfield’s St. Patrick’s Day parade returned on Saturday. Kristin Wilda and the Hands and Hearts nonprofit program were year’s grand marshalls. Wilda owns the Maggie Casey’s Celtic Treasure store on Main Street and is on the board of the Something Special thrift store, also on Main Street, that benefits Hands & Hearts.

Editor’s note: Captions have been updated to correct that Hands & Hearts is now an independent nonprofit rather than a program of Trinity United Methodist Church, and that Kristin Wilda owns Maggie Casey’s Celtic Treasure, not Treasures. Wilda is on the board that oversees Something Special, not its owner.
