(March 13, 2013 – Sioux City, Iowa) – The 5th Annual Sioux City St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take place at 12:15 p.m. on Sunday, March 17 in downtown Sioux City. Leading the parade will be City Councilwoman Rhonda Capron, this year’s grand marshal, and at the end will be this year’s featured Irish Person of the Year, Brendan Burchard. In between? More than 50 entries representing local schools, sports teams, businesses and Irish families.

“This year’s parade is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before,” said Mac Dolan, co-chair of the Sioux City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. “We hope everyone brings their families out to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day the Sioux City way!”

Capron was selected as grand marshal after years of supporting the Sioux City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Burchard, a longtime coach and teacher at Bishop Heelan, was named last year’s “educator of the year” by Morningside College.

The parade will start at Iowa and 3rd Streets, heading west down 3rd to Jackson Street, where it will turn right and travel for one block to 4th Street.  It will continue east down the length of Historic 4th Street, ending at Floyd Blvd. 

Anyone interested in registering an entry for the parade should e-mail their name and contact information to siouxcityshamrock@yahoo.com
