As usual, a large turnout is expected for the annual Prairie du Chien Area Chamber of Commerce St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 12.
Parade participants are asked to assemble at 9 a.m. on St. Feriole Island and the parade will begin at approximately 10 a.m.
“Just as robins are a welcome harbinger of spring, the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is a sure indication that the seasons are ready to change and we can start to say farewell to winter,” said City Administrator Aaron Kramer. “It is a real positive for the city and especially the downtown, and the chamber does a real nice job putting it all together and drawing visitors from all around the area.”
The parade will start from St. Feriole Island and proceed east on Blackhawk Avenue, north on Michigan Street, west on Washington Street and then back to St. Feriole Island.
