We’ve given a fair amount of coverage to the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and post-parade festivities happening in Ocean City this weekend, but if you aren’t going to be in OCMD this weekend, there are still plenty of St. Paddy’s Day events happening across Delmarva, including in Cambridge, Salisbury and Lewes.
