Clear Lake hosts state's oldest St. Paddy's Day parade

Posted: Updated:

Every year, Clear Lake goes all out for Saint Patrick's Day – hosting the state's oldest St. Paddy's parade.

It all starts with the parade in the afternoon, followed by activities like an Irish stew contest and a pie auction to support the area hospital.

In a town that's largely dominated by Scandinavian heritage, this celebration is a chance for all 1,300 residents to go Irish.

In 1982, Clear Lake was officially recognized host to South Dakota's official St. Patrick's Day parade.
