It’s St. Patrick’s Day today (MON), and the communities of St. Peter and New Ulm are celebrating. St. Peter’s St. Patrick’s Day parade starts at 5:30pm today at Broadway and Third Street and proceeds down Third to Mulberry Street, followed by Irish food and drinks at several St. Peter establishments. The 49th annual New Ulm St. Patrick’s Day Parade starts at 5pm at 3rd South and Minnesota and travels the wrong way through downtown New Ulm to the Glockenspiel. The Concord Singers will again be performing traditional Irish tunes at the Kaiserhoff following the New Ulm parade. Lucan celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, and Belle Plaine on Saturday, when Marisa Worrell was crowned the community’s 2014 Miss Shamrock. Rebecca Johnson and Devin Lehman were named Belle Plaine’s Miss Shamrock Princesses as well.
