Sturgeon Bay will again be turning green for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade this Saturday. Although the bay will not be turned green like in Chicago, the city will have plenty of green represented in the parade route that starts at Sawyer Park on the west side and proceeding over the Maple-to-Oregon Bridge through downtown on Third Avenue. One of the original organizers over twenty years ago, Mike Taylor who now resides in North Dakota says the parade has grown in popularity over the years.
Taylor says he along with Dan and Mark O’Hern, John Scanlon and Brian Cofou came up with the idea to get the community engaged and enjoying an outdoor activity before the tourism season begins. The St. Patrick’s Day parade will begin at 11 am Saturday. You can find more information on entering a float in the parade with the link below.
