For the first time since before the pandemic, you will be able to line the streets for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Sturgeon Bay. The 2020 edition was one of the first events to get canceled due to COVID-19 concerns when Governor Tony Evers ordered all events with more than 250 attendees not to take place. The virus was also to blame for the 2021 parade being canceled. Carly Sarkis from Destination Sturgeon Bay says preparing for this Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade meant a lot.
Safety was also a big concern after last December’s tragedy at the Waukesha Christmas Parade. As a result, the parade route will be a throwback to years ago. Departing from Sawyer Park, the parade route will now go over the Michigan Street Bridge before turning left onto the 3rd Avenue. The parade kicks off at 11 a.m.
