(LISTEN) Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Prairie du Chien

It’s time to get your Irish on this Saturday in Prairie du Chien! The annual St. Patrick’s Day parade is back after being cancelled because of Covid. Chamber president and CEO Bob Moses says registration isn’t necessary, but they do ask that your entry include something about Prairie du Chien’s 150th birthday:

Along with a bagpiper, the parade will honor a few area residents:

Line up for the parade starts at 9am on St. Feriole Island and will start making it’s way through downtown at 10am. You’re invited to stick around after the parade for even more fun:

You can also get the day started with the annual “Shamrock Shuffle”, a 5K Run/Walk that starts at Hoffman Hall. Prairie du Chien Parks and Rec Director Mike Ulrich says it’s a fun event with proceeds going to another great program.
