The Parade will travel from 9th Street and Phillips Avenue and go down Phillip's Avenue.
The parade kicks off with the annual Painting of the Shamrock that takes place at the center of the city, 9th Street and Phillips Avenue.
Sponsored by the St. Patrick´s Day Extravaganza
Committee, with help from Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, the annual parade was designed to be a people´s parade - meaning anyone can
participate as long as they´re wearing a button. The "official" St. Patrick´s Day Parade buttons cost ABOUT $3 each. All proceeds are donated to the
Special Olympics and other worthwhile children´s charities in the Sioux Falls area. Thank you to our sponsors Avera, Sanford Health, and Xcel
Energy. Contact Valerie Willson for more information.
If it is a cold day, bring a warm hat, warm gloves, and warm shoes. For a sunny day, you’ll want to bring sunglasses, suntan lotion, and a hat. The parade goes on rain, shine or snow. And of course, it is traditional to be dressed in GREEN (or orange or white - colors of the Irish flag)!
Mass transit is a great way to get in and out to see the parade.
