Wilmington goes green

Wilmington leaders won’t dye the Brandywine River green like they do in Chicago, but part of the city will “go green” to get ready for Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.  
King Street will get a green stripe with Mayor James Baker doing the painting as part of the annual holiday tradition.  Baker will paint King Street at 11th Street today at noon.  The parade will start at noon Saturday from the intersection of 4th and King, and head up to 15th St. ending at St. Patrick’s Church.
