St. Patrick's Day Parade to be held Saturday, March 18
The 38th annual St. Patrick's Day parade in Sioux Falls will depart from recent tradition and will be held on Saturday, March 18, this year.
The St. Patrick's Day Extravaganza Committee, which plans the parade with support from the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, has held the parade on the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day since 2009. This year, though, it will be the day after St. Patrick's Day, providing a two-day celebration.
Larry Fuller, a retired newspaper publisher who was on hand at the start of the Sioux Falls St. Patrick's Day parade and continues to support its promotion, will be the Grand Marshal of the Parade.
Fuller, 75, arrived in Sioux Falls in 1977 and served first as executive editor and then later as publisher of the Argus Leader. He and his wife Suzanne, a Sioux Falls native, moved to Hawaii in 1993 for his job, but returned to Sioux Falls upon retirement in. . .
