Nothing stops the Irish
NEW ULM — The St. Patrick’s Day tradition continues in New Ulm. The city has held a St. Patrick’s Day parade every year for 56 years. This is longest continuous St. Patrick’s parade in Minnesota.
Last year the parade was permit was rescinded at the last moment due the state going into lockdown, but a small marched continued in private.
This year, a select few decorated their vehicles in green and drove down Minnesota at 5 p.m. The grand marshall was Denny Warta. The vehicle parade was brief with less than 10 vehicles, but it was enough to keep the tradition alive. The parade circled the block and drove down Minnesota a second time for those who missed it the first time.
