Enjoy the St. Patrick's Day parade in Downtown Sioux Falls for great family fun!
The festivities officially kick off with the annual Painting of the Shamrock that takes place at the center of the city, 9th Street and Phillips Avenue at 11am.
The first St. Patrick´s Day Parade was held in downtown Sioux Falls in 1980. 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 $3 each.
