Families sought to enter March 13 Grand Forks St. Patrick's Day parade

Families, individuals and businesses are encouraged to celebrate St. Patrick's Day on March 13 by joining a parade through downtown Grand Forks sponsored by the Grand Forks Masons Malta Lodge 131.

Families, individuals and businesses are encouraged to celebrate St. Patrick's Day on March 13 by joining a parade through downtown Grand Forks sponsored by the Grand Forks Masons Malta Lodge 131.

"We are encouraging families and individuals to walk in the parade dressed in whatever they feel appropriate with maybe a banner or poster boasting their family name," said Bill Steckler, one of the event organizers. It is a St. Patrick's Day tradition to carry that sign upside down, he said.

People are welcome to bring pets if they are properly leashed; pets also can wear something green.

Terry Dullum of WDAZ TV will be marshal of the third annual parade. The event had grown each year, both with more people in the parade and more people watching the parade, Steckler said. This year it will begin at 3 p.m. March 13 in front of Widman's Candy on North Third Street and will continue parallel to the river on to Kelly's Bar on North Third.

Newly inducted members of KEM Shrine will lead the parade followed by KEM Shrine parade units, commercial and float entries and then families.
